FAO West Bank and Gaza Strip Newsletter - August 2008

FAO West Bank and Gaza Strip Newsletter - August 2008

Aug 2008

FAO's main objective in the West Bank and Gaza Strip is to provide a safety net for food insecure farming/herding households whose traditional livelihoods are endangered and whose coping mechanisms are over-stretched. Food security information and analysis is also a key area for FAO in the West Bank and Gaza Strip, promoting inter-agency cooperation to address social protection concerns. FAO is currently implementing seventeen projects across the region, benefiting more than 8000 households, or 48,000 individuals, and with a budget totalling over $13,000,000. These projects are funded by the Governments of Italy, Japan, Norway, Spain, Canada, and Sweden.
