The UK’s focus and international leadership on economic development is a vital part of Global Britain - harnessing the potential of new trade relationships, creating jobs and channelling investment to the world’s poorest countries. Throughout history, sustained, job-creating growth has played the greatest role in lifting huge numbers of people out of grinding poverty.

Mr. Jaffar Adam lives in Abu Shouk in North Darfur, Sudan. He is responsible for supporting a large extended family. For the past six years, the water pipe near him has not been working, which meant that he had to buy water from water trucks and donkey vendors. This cost 350SDG (approximately $52) per month; a huge expense for the family. In addition, the water was poor quality, with high levels of impurities, because it came from private boreholes which are often poorly maintained. “The water was too salty to drink as it is”, said Mr. Adam.
The last decade has seen major growth in humanitarian need, putting the international humanitarian system under pressure and stretching donor resources. Within this context, the UK Department for International Development (DFID) introduced multiyear humanitarian funding (MYHF) for protracted conflicts in 2014. This recognised the long-term nature of many of the top recipients of humanitarian aid, as well as the complexity of the contexts in which they were operating.
