The UK’s financial support to the Palestinian Authority (PA) is governed by a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) between the UK and the PA. This MoU includes a commitment to the UK's partnership principles, and is reviewed on an annual basis. At the last review in May 2018, DFID assessed that the PA continued to demonstrate commitment to these shared principles. The next full annual assessment will take place in 2019.
