Enhancing Market-Oriented Urban Agriculture in the Gaza Strip: Networking for policy change and resilience
The protracted conflict and the Israeli-imposed blockade have had a devastating effect on Gaza’s economy. The movement of people and goods is severely restricted; 90 percent of factories and workshops have had to close; 80 percent of people are in need of aid; and exports recently fell to less than two percent. Oxfam is working as one of 50 member organizations of the Gaza Urban and Peri-urban Agricultural Platform (GUPAP) to increase support for small-scale producers and processors. This case study details how GUPAP will contribute to the planning processes of the Ministry of Agriculture and the Ministry of National Economy – with the aim of strengthening livelihoods, boosting the economy and improving food security and quality for consumers across Gaza.
