Global Conflict Prevention Pool (GCPP) mechanisms and resources are used to support UK policy towards the Middle East Peace Process. GCPP funds projects in the region that aim to address drivers of conflict in order to enhance the prospect of a sustainable two-state solution. Examples include:
a project which has helped move the route of the separation barrier closer to the green line;
a project which aims to raise awareness of planning problems in Palestinian villages in Israeli controlled areas of the West Bank and take action to tackle this problem;
a project identifying systematic failures in due process in the Israeli military courts and attempting to correct them through legal and public advocacy;
work to facilitate freedom of movement for Palestinians in the Occupied Palestinian Territories through legal and administrative action and promoting access to the Israeli judicial system; and
providing assistance to close protection for Palestinian President Abbas.
