Financial Action Task Force (FATF) UK Voluntary Contribution

HM Treasury

UK contribution to support to the Financial Action Task Force (FATF), the international standard setter for tackling money laundering, terrorist financing and proliferation financing, to increase the number of staff within its Global Network Coordination Group (GNCG). This enables GNCG to considerably increase its engagement with, and improve the quality of country assessments conducted by, the FATF-style regional bodies (FSRBs), and improve understanding of the FATF Standards among FSRB member countries. More robust, timely assessments and improved understanding of international AML/CTF/CPF standards drives more effective, more timely corrective measures around the world, leading to reduced opportunities for and improved law enforcement responses to financial crime. This additional engagement also enables and improves the effectiveness of other development interventions from other capacity building providers, including the International Monetary Fund, the World Bank, and others, as the regional institutional frameworks will be strengthened and knowledge of the FATF Standards will be increased.

UK - Home Office

The UK Home Office recognises the moral and operational imperative to support the global fight against online child sexual exploitation (CSE). As such, the Home Office has committed £40 million towards the UNICEF hosted End Violence Against Children Fund (EVAC) to support activities intending to build international capacity to tackle online CSE. The EVAC's strategy for supporting international action aligned to the WePROTECT Global Alliance's (WPGA) strategy for national action. The WePROTECT Global Alliance combines expertise from industry, law enforcement, government and civil society to determine the capabilities required at country level to effectively respond to the threat of online CSE. Projects funded by the EVAC fund must demonstrate how they support the implementation of the WPGA's Model National Response.

Global Business Environment Programme

Cross-Government Prosperity Fund

This programme aims to improve the business environment in middle-income economies by stimulating growth and creating jobs, helping to lift people out of poverty. It is worth £30 million over 4 years, and aims to support reforms that improve the business environment in a range of middle-income countries. It also aims to unlock inclusive growth for women, who can be disproportionately affected by a poor business environment. The programme will provide technical assistance to national governments and sub-national authorities to support their reform programmes by improving capacity in areas like investment promotion and fostering competition. Middle income countries are widely recognised as engines of global growth. However weak institutions and inadequate regulations often constrain growth and exacerbate challenges such as low productivity levels. Global growth improves opportunities for international business, including UK companies, to contribute to and benefit from economic growth in other countries.

Annual Contribution to the Ramsar Convention on Wetlands

Department for Environment, Food, and Rural Affairs

This activity supports an annual contribution to the Ramsar Convention, or the Convention on Wetlands, which is an intergovernmental treaty that seeks to conserve wetlands and their resources. The mission of the Ramsar Convention explicitly conceives of the conservation and wise use of wetlands as a contribution towards achieving sustainable development throughout the world. Wetlands provide a range of vital ecosystem services; they deliver flood control, coastal protection, and climate change adaptation and mitigation functions, protecting the communities most at risk from floods, droughts and storm surges. They are also diverse habitats, which support biodiversity and are essential to the life cycles and migratory patterns of many species. Overall, wetlands provide food for more than three billion people worldwide and are a source of freshwater and livelihoods for over one billion people. The Ramsar Convention in pursuing the global wise use of wetlands makes a central contribution to long-term pro-poor growth and to protecting the livelihoods of the poorest. The Convention provides support to developing countries through the provision of small grants, advisory missions and funding for emergency action in threatened areas, targeted capacity building and training, and sharing of expertise from developed countries.

Met Office Hadley Centre Climate Change Programme

Department for Environment, Food, and Rural Affairs

Funding from UK government to deliver excellent climate research to provide an improved understanding of past climate and enable better projections to underpin national scientific capability and inform domestic and international policy commitments (e.g. Climate Change Act 2008 and UNFCCC negotiations). Climate models and underpinning science developed using MOHCCP funding are publically available and used as the foundation for many projects that aim to build resilience to a changing climate in developing countries. The models are used for developing systems in developing countries to produce climate projections. For example, the models have been used to analyse drought in the Horn of Africa, climate change impacts in Bangladesh and to build resilience to climate change in the Philippines.

Annual contribution to the Cartagena Protocol on Biosafety

Department for Environment, Food, and Rural Affairs

This activity supports an annual contribution to the Cartagena Protocol. The Cartagena Protocol sets out policy and regulation of genetically modified organisms (GMOs) released into the environment. The UK has engaged with the Cartagena Protocol on Biosafety (CPB) since it was adopted in 2000, and signed it the same year. The Protocol aims to ensure the safety of human health and the environment by governing the transfer, handling, and packaging of international movements of GMOs. As a Party to the CPB, the UK is bound by United Nations Environment Programme rules to pay an annual subscription. The CPB recognises the benefits of modern biotechnology, and at the same time aims to protect human health, the environment, conservation, and biological diversity from any potential risks arising from the handling, transfer and packaging of GMOs during international movement. Parties are subject to a range of obligations, and, therefore, need a range of capabilities in order to fulfil their obligations under the Protocol. These include an appropriate infrastructure (the ability to detect and identify GMOs), legislation, policy and scientific expertise, and access to robust and balanced information. The Protocol has a focus on the evolving needs of countries with economies in transition to support access to existing expertise and technology. Under the Protocol a number of regional, national and international decisions have been developed and adopted in order to support the development of the capabilities of Parties, as appropriate.
