Several UK personnel have been seconded to the Coalition Provisional Authority to assist with the reconstruction of the judicial sector and the development of human rights in Iraq. The UN and World Bank needs assessment for Iraq, announced at the Madrid Donors' Conference in October, estimated that the judicial sector would require 66.5 million US dollars from 2004 to 2007. At the Conference, pledges of over 33 billion US dollars in grants and concessional loans were received in total for reconstruction in Iraq. There is as yet no detail on how much of this sum will be allocated to the judicial sector.
