Titre : GVCD - Gaza Vulnerable Communities Development Programme

Pays/Région : Palestine

Durée : 01.01.2022 // 31.12.2024

Through the Gaza Vulnerable Communities Development Programme, Switzerland contributes to covering basic needs and fostering social cohesion in the Gaza Strip. The successful intervention model applied in the 1st Phase is extended and scaled up under this 2nd Phase. Small infrastructure projects addressing basic needs of vulnerable communities serve as an entry point for a local dialogue on development priorities, enabled through building the capacities of both duty bearers and right holders, including youth and women.

Projet en bref
* Contexte : Gaza Strip`s context remains fragile due to the Israeli closure and the internal Palestinian divide for the past 15 years. The communities located near the eastern border of the Strip, which are targeted with this intervention, are among the most vulnerable ones. Their agricultural lands are designated as Access Restricted Areas by the Israeli authorities, thus severely limiting access to these fertile lands. Their rural character, marginal location and relatively small population size do not grant them enough funding through established channels, such as the Municipal Development Programme (MDP).
* Objectifs  : Improved provision of quality essential services for vulnerable communities in Gaza Strip through enhanced citizen participation in local service delivery and decision-making.
* Groupes cibles  : - Vulnerable communities in the South East of the Gaza Strip. 30,000 citizens will benefit directly, and 100,000 indirectly, from the project. - Civic groups (including youth, women and persons with disabilities), neighbourhood committees and local civil society organisations active in the selected municipalities. - Municipal councils and technical staff in the selected municipalities as well as MDLF Gaza-based staff.

Budget de la Suisse  : CHF 6’820’000
