TOR for Project Baseline
Through a partnership with European Union (EU), Oxfam launched the project “Promotion of inclusive agricultural growth to ensure improved living standards and resilience of vulnerable communities in Area C of the West Bank”. The project will support small-scale women and men farmers and herders to maximize the use and protection of land by expanding the area under cultivation and by promoting better utilisation of already cultivated land. It will support farming and herding communities in land rehabilitation and water management, capitalizing on investments already made by agricultural stakeholders, including the Ministry of Agriculture (MoA) and agricultural NGOs. It will upgrade farmer capacities to sustainably protect and manage grazing and agricultural lands and water resources and to advocate for improved national policies and strengthened international protection and engagement in Area C. Building upon Oxfam’s rich experience in market systems development, it will strengthen demand-driven service delivery and the market integration of farmers benefitting from land development and water management support and thus improve income derived from agriculture. In parallel, the capacities of the MoA to promote more inclusive agricultural development in Area C will be strengthened and coordinated advocacy work will be undertaken with farmers organizations and key stakeholders in Area C. Finally, it will support and increase all ongoing efforts to mobilize and activate national and international stakeholders through ad hoc influencing actions on land rights to challenge Israeli planning and permit regime in Area C. All of the initiatives will be underpinned by the overall national goal of strengthening women and men farmers’ resilience and attachment to their lands.
