FCDO Occupied Palestinian Territories (OPTs) Trade Facilitation and Customs Support (Tasdeer) Programme
 
Ramallah, Palestine
 
The Project: FCDO Trade Facilitation and Customs Support (Tasdeer; Tasdeer)
The FCDO Trade Facilitation and Customs Support programme (Tasdeer) is a £15m programme financed by FCDO and operational from 2020 – 2023. The objective of Tasdeer is to improve the trade performance and customs capabilities in the OPTs. It will ultimately contribute to increased inclusive private sector-led economic growth and fiscal sustainability in the OPTs. The programme is designed to be flexible and adaptable, and it will work politically and technically to make progress across the four key interrelated workstreams.
  • Workstream 1: Support to expedite the movement of goods and reduce transaction costs
  • Workstream 2: Support to improve Palestinian trade-related institutions and business enabling environment
  • Workstream 3: Support to improve the private sector’s skills and innovation to export and create jobs
  • Workstream 4: Support to improve PA’s customs readiness to assume functions from Israel and revenues from trade-related taxes
The programme is implemented by a Cowater-led consortium on behalf of FCDO. A Steering Committee (including representatives from FCDO, the Ministry of National Economy and other donors) will approve interventions identified and designed by the supplier. Supplier interventions will be reviewed, and quality assured by a Strategic Advisory Panel comprised of experts from the core consortium members across the four workstreams. The Steering Committee will also monitor results and provide policy oversight throughout the programme lifetime.
