Background

The United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) is the UN’s global development network, advocating for change and connecting countries to knowledge, experience and resources to help people build a better life. We are on the ground in 170 countries and territories, working with governments and people on their own solutions to global and national development challenges to help empower lives and build resilient nations. UNDP Programme of Assistance to the Palestinian People (PAPP) derives its mandate from United Nations General Assembly Resolution 33/147 of 20 December 1978 to improve the economic and social conditions of the Palestinian people by identifying their social and economic needs and by establishing concrete projects to that end.

Due to the blockade and restriction of access to people and commodities and the recurrent hostilities affecting the Gaza Strip since 2007, the overall socioeconomic conditions there have deteriorated. The negative impact has been compounded by the COVID-19 pandemic and political instability that further undermined Gaza’s development aspirations.

Based on the Israeli cabinet decision to ease the blockade on the Gaza Strip in 2010, the international organizations were allowed to access the construction materials and equipment needed for the projects they manage in the Gaza Strip. Accordingly, UNDP/PAPP has established the Access Coordination and Monitoring Support Project and set up the needed systems and standard operating procedures to safely facilitate the entry of materials and equipment. UNDP/PAPP has rented a warehouse in the Gaza Industrial Estate to serve as a junction point in the cycle of materials-delivery from entry point to the respective points of destination where the nature and quantities of commodities are properly documented.
