The Conflict Stability and Security Fund (CSSF) only started in April 2015. The table attached gives a breakdown of Women, Peace and Security-related projects in (a) Afghanistan, (b) Bosnia, (c) Kosovo, (d) the Democratic Republic of Congo, (e) Somalia and (f) South Sudan including their funding allocations by financial year.

The CSSF recognises at its core the importance of mainstreaming gender in all CSSF funded interventions. We do this, for example, by ensuring all programmes are compliant with the Gender Equality Act through requiring the design of all programmes to pay due consideration to the impact on gender equality . Examples of such projects include "Increasing access and participation of Women in the political process in Bosnia" and "Afghanistan, the Security Sector and Peace Building Programme" which supports the participation of women in the Afghan national police force.
