Résumé
Along with countries in the region, the state of Palestine has been adversely affected by the consequences of the Ukraine crisis – for instance, during the month of April 2022, the cost of food basket rose 7%. Moreover, the Palestinian territories have been suffering from a shortage of supply and soaring local wheat and flour prices, both the main source of imports, since the outbreak of Russia-Ukraine conflict. Only 12% of the wheat demand is produced locally. Production is hampered by the fragile socio-economic conditions as well as climate-driven fluctuations in rainfall that affect production quality. Fresh vegetables are another key commodity experiencing pricing pressures. Consequently, rising prices will impact on the already struggling social protection system in the SoP. Recent analysis on the perspective of establishing a social protection floor in oPt has revealed significant gaps in coverage and adequacy of the social assistance system and limitation with the adoption of a PMT (Proxy Means Test) methodology for beneficiary identification and benefit determination
