In financial year 2016-17, £1.52 million was spent on UK expertise to Bahraini-led reform: This was financed from HMG's Conflict, Security and Stability Fund (CSSF). We expect a similar amount to be spent in financial year 2017-18. This funding will come from the Global Britain Fund and the Integrated Activity Fund.
