Description and results


This project aims to improve the resilience of Palestinian women, men and children by helping to improve their food security, and access to safe, sufficient and nutritious food. The project seeks to improve the ability of poor families in nine communities, with a focus on the women most vulnerable to poverty, to produce and buy the food they need to live healthy lives and have a sustainable means of earning a living. Some project activities include: (i) raising awareness of good farming practices; (ii) providing chickens, goats, small greenhouses, beehives and bees, animal fodder, and seeds, to help people meet their food needs and, in some cases, earn a living; and (iii) increasing the opportunities for women to make a sustainable living. This project is one of over 150 projects that make up the United Nations' 2014 Humanitarian Programme Cycle (HPC) for the West Bank and Gaza. The 2014 HPC, worth over US $400 million, allows the international community to help spare Palestinians from the worst effects of the ongoing crisis. Delivered through a coordinated approach, the HPC provides life-saving humanitarian assistance by providing food, water, health, and nutrition and by increasing the protection of civilians.

Expected results

The expected intermediate outcomes for this project include: improved resiliency and sustainability of the livelihoods of food insecure households in the West Bank and Gaza.
