The Conflict Pool is a funding mechanism for conflict prevention activities, managed jointly by the Foreign and Commonwealth Office, DFID and the Ministry of Defence. Based on case studies of Pakistan and the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), this evaluation of the Conflict Pool’s Official Development Assistance element assesses whether it has led to a coherent, strategic and effective UK approach to conflict prevention.
