Agriculture Census 2020 - Autorité Palestinienne


Direction du Développement de la Coopération (Suisse)

Titre : Agriculture Census 2020 - Autorité Palestinienne

Pays/Région : Autorité Palestinienne

Durée : 01.12.2018 - 31.12.2022

Switzerland will support the realization of the Agriculture Census in 2020 through contributing to the Palestinian Central Bureau of Statistics (PCBS). Updated and accurate data on agriculture holdings is an enabling tool for public and private investment as well as to plan and monitor relevant developments in the agriculture sector, in accordance with the National Policy Agenda (2017-2022). This project will offer opportunities to engage Swiss expertise in the domain of statistics and agriculture.

Projet en bref
* Contexte : The agricultural sector has historically been an important driver in the Palestinian economy since it creates job opportunities. As of 2010, this sector was employing 11.5% of the Palestinian labor force, of which 33% were women. In 2011, the value of Palestinian agricultural production was $1,295 million (70% in the West Bank, and 30% in the Gaza Strip)[1]. The current available data on the agricultural situation in the oPt is not up to date and doesn’t reflect the real situation on the ground. PCBS is mandated to providing accurate, updated, neutral, comprehensive and high quality official statistics which should be used by the PA as a base for strategic planning and policy making.
* Objectifs  : Establish an updated detailed and accurate holdings database that will assist in planning and policy making at all levels related to the agricultural sector.
* Groupes cibles  : Ministry of Agriculture (MoA) Indirect beneficiaries : Farmers’ Unions, Agricultural Cooperative Societies and Palestinian private sector investors. Universities, research institutions and Non-Governmental Organizations (NGOs). Bilateral and multilateral development agencies

Budget de la Suisse  : CHF 775’000
