UNDP through current dialogue with KfW is exploring new partnership arrangement for launching new initiative, namely, Investment Programme for Resilience (IPR), as a comprehensive, inclusive and integrated response to the needs of the most vulnerable/marginalized communities in Palestine. It is designed based on a sound analysis of the risks and problems posed by the COVID-19 crisis and its immediate implications. It is also based on the analysis of previously existing multisectoral development challenges.
The Programme aims to reduce development gaps by addressing short term-immediate needs through enhancing the preparedness and response capacity of the health system by (1) provision of procurement of personal protective equipment (PPE) for health workers as well as specialized equipment and supplies, (2) training of health workers and by providing short term job opportunities to skilled and unskilled workers in the West Bank and East Jerusalem, and Gaza, and (3) procurement and placement of medical waste treatment devices and training of health personnel inside the health facilities and LGUs staff.
Simultaneously, at the medium to longer term, IPR is seeking to address community needs through investments in community infrastructure and basic services within a strategic approach in addressing key drivers of vulnerabilities. These include poverty, unemployment, weakness of social services, geo-political constraints, absence of policy planning, disparities and new emerging socio-economic implications as a result of the COVID-19 crisis. Selected investments in community social infrastructure are intended to play a pivotal role in reducing disparities, strengthening social cohesion, and enhancing community engagement and decision-making (particularly women, youth, and people with disabilities), and also contribute to creating short-term employment opportunities through construction/rehabilitation works and long-term sustainable jobs for the operation and management of new services provided.
