star this property answer text <p>International mechanisms to tackle illegal trafficking already exist, including the Kimberley Process to regulate the global trade in rough diamonds, and the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species to protect endangered species. However, these are reliant of having an effective national government in the Central African Republic (CAR). To this end, our immediate priority is to de-escalate the levels of violence and improve the level of security, so that a legitimate government can be established in CAR with the support of the UN and other international organisations.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The Government implements its commitments under the Kimberley Process Certification Scheme (KPCS) in full. In order to maintain the integrity of the KPCS, the Central African Republic (CAR) was temporarily suspended from the KPCS in May 2013, preventing the possible introduction of rough diamonds produced in CAR into the legitimate diamond trade. This suspension was upheld in June 2014. It is likely to remain in place until the security situation in CAR improves significantly and the government of CAR is able to re-establish compliance with the KPCS.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The Arab Partnership was created in 2010 as a part of the Government’s response to the Arab Spring. This initiative comprised two parts; the Foreign and Commonwealth Office-led Arab Partnership Participation Fund (APPF) and the Department for International Development-led Arab Partnership Economic Facility (APEF). Since 2011 APPF and APEF programmes have channelled £166m to projects across the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region to support the development of legitimate and inclusive institutions (including civil society, parliaments, media and judiciaries) to improve governance and enable inclusive economic growth and reform.</p><p>The APPF was launched in the Financial Year (FY) 2011-2 and provided funding worth £5,195,304. In FY 2014-5 it provided £10,512,791. The total funding from FY 2011-12 up to and including FY 2014-15 was £42,803,007. It was distributed as follows:</p><table><tbody><tr><td><p>Algeria</p></td><td><p>£3,798,631</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Bahrain</p></td><td><p>£227,021</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Egypt</p></td><td><p>£5,644,406</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Iraq</p></td><td><p>£1,417,916</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Jordan</p></td><td><p>£3,286,270</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Kuwait</p></td><td><p>£130,155</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Lebanon</p></td><td><p>£917,622</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Libya</p></td><td><p>£4,458,601</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Mauritania</p></td><td><p>£215,552</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Morocco</p></td><td><p>£3,386,058</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Oman</p></td><td><p>£255,144</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>OPT</p></td><td><p>£625,551</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Regional</p></td><td><p>£9,595,633</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Syria</p></td><td><p>£584,961</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Tunisia</p></td><td><p>£8,180,151</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>UAE</p></td><td><p>£7355</p></td></tr><tr><td> </td><td> </td></tr><tr><td><p>Admin</p></td><td><p>£71,980</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Total</p></td><td><p>£42,803,007</p></td></tr></tbody></table><p>For FY 2015-6, the APPF will allocate £6m of funding to countries not currently receiving Conflict, Stability and Security Fund (CSSF) funding, including Algeria, Mauritania, Morocco, Tunisia and a small proportion of non-Official Development Assistance funding available for projects in Gulf States (£150k). The CSSF allocation to the MENA region for FY 2105-16 currently stands at £136.5m.</p>
