DFID’s priorities in the Occupied Palestinian Territories are to promote economic opportunities, provide humanitarian relief and improve governance. In the course of this work we regularly meet Palestinian civil society organisations such as the local chapter of Transparency International, ALLMEP and Search for Common Ground. We only provide funding to organisations following a rigorous due diligence process.
