As part of the Conflict, Stability and Security Fund (CSSF) Annual Review process, the Ministry of Defence routinely looks at how it can implement the recommendations made against its programmes.

In relation to the UK Ministry of Defence's work with both the Iraqi Ministry of Defence and the Kurdish Regional Government, we keep our programme of co-operation under review, to ensure that the UK's activity is targeted where it will achieve the best outcomes and that our advisers in-country have clear objectives.

A decision was taken to cease CSSF funding for the Sudan Improving International Standards in the Defence Sector programme for financial year (FY) 2019-20.

We are currently conducting an in-depth review of the North East Nigeria Security, Conflict and Stabilisation programme which will seek to incorporate the review's recommendations and implement key changes for FY 2019-20.
