Community Resilience and Development Programme (CRDP) Palestine


Titre : Community Resilience and Development Programme (CRDP) Palestine

Pays : Palestine

Durée : October 2012 // December 2020

The CRDP programme is designed to address the challenges and development needs of communities living in Area C and East Jerusalem. Its objective is to empower local stakeholders, through the most suitable partners, to respond with resilience to threats that affect their sustenance on the land. To this end, the programme will contribute to : * Preventing the erosion of living conditions of Palestinians in Area C and East Jerusalem that undermine their development capital ; * Protecting Palestinian land and property in Area C and East Jerusalem ; and * Mitigating and ideally reversing migration flow from Area C and East Jerusalem by enhancing human security and livelihood of Palestinians.

The CRDP is the result of a fruitful partnership led by the Palestinian Government, funded by the Governments of Sweden, Austria, Norway, Finland, United Kingdom and Switzerland and implemented by UNDP’s Programme of Assistance to the Palestinian People (UNDP/PAPP). The Programme, which targets Palestinians residing in Area C and East Jerusalem, facilitates a complementary approach and a transition process from humanitarian interventions towards development and builds initiatives that are of a development nature, but are currently not taking place in Area C and East Jerusalem.

The programme is being implemented by a wide array of partners, including grassroots organizations, communities, local and international NGOs, based on their respective merits, and according to locally designed plans. It focuses on improving public and social infrastructure, access to and protection of natural resources, enhancing economic opportunities and upholding the rights of Palestinian citizens.

By 2017, the CRDP has enhanced the resilience of more than 112,000 Palestinians living in East Jerusalem and Area C ; in addition to 110 grants, of a value of more than USD 24 million, have been implemented and completed. Based on the success achieved and considering the recommendations put forward in the final evaluation study of the CRDP conducted during 2017, the four partners recognized the importance of extending the CRDP till end of September 2019. The new contribution is expected to benefit around 20,000 people living in East Jerusalem, in addition to 6,000 Palestinians, mainly within the Bedouin community in Area C. With focus on East Jerusalem, the programme will be supporting economic empowerment and employability, education, housing, tourism and cultural activities while targeting youth, women and persons with disabilities
