According to the World Bank, as of May 15th 2015, 27.5% of the pledges made at the Cairo conference in October 2014 had been disbursed. The UK pledged £20 million in early recovery assistance at the conference. We have disbursed over 80% of the pledge and the remaining will be disbursed this financial year, focussing largely on getting businesses back to work.
