LONDON (AP) — The British government says it is giving an additional 67 million pounds ($102 million) to Sudan over the next three years, with at least half of the aid earmarked for the war-torn Darfur region.
International Development Minister Lynne Featherstone says the funds will help end Darfur's dependency on emergency aid by tackling the root causes of poverty.
The money will go toward helping communities grow their own food and get skills training.
The announcement through Britain's Department for International Development came ahead of an international donor's conference on Darfur's development held Sunday in Qatar.
Britain currently spends 25 million pounds a year in Darfur.
