The UK assesses that people-to-people programmes are important to improve inter-community understanding and help build the necessary environment for a just and peaceful solution, as recognised in the report. The UK will be providing up to £3 million over three years to fund a people-to-people programme to help Israelis and Palestinians work together to achieve improvements in their lives and build understanding between people on both sides of the conflict.
