Consolidate data to strengthen democratic processes in Palestine. (Re-posted)
Mission and objectives
The UNDP Programme of Assistance to the Palestinian People (PAPP) derives its mandate from United Nations General Assembly Resolution 33/147 of 20 December 1978. Called upon by United Nations Member States in that year, UNDP was requested “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”. With the adoption of the GA Resolution, UNDP seized a historic opportunity to mobilize the international community in support of the economic and social development of the West Bank and Gaza Strip. Firmly rooted in the principle of the Right to Development, UNDP/PAPP was launched. The continued and deepening occupation of the territory, and its severe socio-economic consequences, serve as a stark reminder of the critical role that UNDP/PAPP continues to play today, over three decades after its establishment. UNDP/PAPP’s comparative advantage rests on its development approach of empowering the Palestinian people and their institutions to achieve a resilient Palestinian nation – based on national ownership and capacity development towards sustainability. With a long-standing presence in the occupied Palestinian territory, UNDP/PAPP has acquired a deep understanding of the local context. A trusted partner and convener, UNDP/PAPP enjoys a close partnership with Palestinian institutions, civil society, communities, academia, the United Nations Country Team (UNCT) and international development partners. Unlike many other development agencies, UNDP/PAPP works throughout the occupied Palestinian territory including, and as requested by the PA and the international community, in East Jerusalem, the Gaza Strip, and what is today Area C of the West Bank.
