The Conflict Pool is funded from a Treasury settlement and not by contributions by individual departments. This is separate from and additional to departmental budgets and is administered jointly by MOD, DFID and FCO for conflict prevention and mitigation work. The Conflict Pool has been running since 2011. DFID’s allocation from the Conflict Pool in financial year 2014/15 was £39 million.

Details of Conflict Pool allocations are provided to Parliament annually in a Written Ministerial Statement.
