The UK in action across the Middle East

The UK is committed to supporting the Middle East Peace Process and to improving the lives of Palestinians in the Occupied Palestinian Territories (OPTs) and the region. We have pledged up to £243 million over 3 years (2008-10) to ensure that basic services are provided in the OPTs and the needs of Palestinian refugees are met.

The UK is the 4th largest donor to the Palestinian people, and also the fourth largest donor to the UN Relief and Works Agency (UNRWA) which works to support Palestinian refugees in the OPTs and elsewhere. The UK has pledged £46.8 million in response to the conflict in Gaza, some of which was allocated to emergency aid and some of which is for recovery.

The map below highlights some of the specific projects that have benefited from this overall funding. It also contains examples of the work that the UK is doing across the region as a whole. Click on one of the pins to open a case study or view the map in a separate window.
