Burma, North Korea and European countries are not signatories and therefore are not eligible for EDF support. The other countries which received the following allocations of development assistance under the 8th EDF are: Zimbabwe: €110 million, Namibia: €52 million, Nigeria: €100 million, Côte d'Ivoire: €120 million and the Democratic Republic of Congo: €25.7 million.

Hilary Benn: The G8 Gleneagles communique" has identified the African Partnership Forum (APF) as the main monitoring mechanism to ensure follow-up of the commitments made at the G8 Summit, on the basis of a Joint Action Plan. This plan will focus on progress of the key priorities identified by African partners. The next APF meeting will take place in London in early October and will be co-chaired by the UK and Nigeria. The UK is fully committed to the APF being effective and has proposed a small secretariat, which would undertake follow-up work in between the bi-annual meetings, and prepare reports/logistics for meetings.

Government (i) pledged, (ii) committed and (iii) delivered to Haiti after tropical storm Jeanne and flooding in 2004. 
Mr. Thomas: No specific pledges were made by the UK Government in response to the May 2004 floods and the impact of tropical storm Jeanne on Haiti. Humanitarian assistance for Haiti was provided following requests for support from humanitarian organisations responding to relief needs in the country.
DFID also undertook its own assessment and monitoring of the situation and provided further support to the World Food Programme by deploying an air movement officer to help facilitate the transportation of personnel and cargo.
Following tropical storm Jeanne, DFID provided two airlifts of emergency relief supplies worth approximately £295,000 to Haiti (tents, Land Rovers, portable generators and radio communications equipment), which were received and delivered by CARE International. A further £150,089 was provided to CARE for logistics support for the tents and for clean-up operations.
In addition, DFID provided £150,000 towards the International Federation of the Red Cross's relief operations, and approximately £171,663 to the NGO Action Contre la Faim for water and sanitation work.
Aside from this humanitarian support, the UK has provided other aid to Haiti through its contributions to Haiti's interim cooperation framework, a short to medium term development programme (200406) supported by the Interim Government and the international donor community. The UK is contributing approximately £35 million through its share of the pledges made by the European Commission, the World Bank and the Inter-American Development Bank.
