star this property answer text <p>All details of DFID programmes on peacebuilding and conflict prevention are published on the Development Tracker at <a href="https://devtracker.dfid.gov.uk/" target="_blank">https://devtracker.dfid.gov.uk/</a> in line with DFID’s transparency policy and commitments. This includes centrally managed funding to the UN Peacebuilding Fund and bilateral projects focused on specific countries, all of which can be searched using the relevant key words. Details are updated routinely once a month. Prior to this all new data is required to go through an approval stage before they are eligible for publication. From the date this approval is received it can take up to 2 months for that information to publish to the Development tracker. This is to enable the project team to ensure that the information that they have provided is correct prior to the monthly publication refresh.</p><p>Where funding from the Conflict, Stability and Security Fund is managed by DFID, programme summaries for all can be found here: <a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/collections/conflict-stability-and-security-fund-programme-summaries#programme-summaries" target="_blank">https://www.gov.uk/government/collections/conflict-stability-and-security-fund-programme-summaries#programme-summaries</a>.</p>
