    Palestinians in the WBGS face a protracted crisis; durable and sustainable solutions are needed to protect and promote their livelihoods beyond short-term responses. In an effort to link relief, rehabilitation and development, this project represents the institutional component of a larger programme funded by the European Union to provide “Support for Livestock-based Livelihoods of Vulnerable Populations in the Occupied Territories”. Under this project, FAO successfully led the coordination of all developmental activities to enhance public capacities of the Ministry of Agriculture in the livestock sector by putting new systems and processes in place. In order to ensure sustainability of the project’s results, the evaluation recommends that the Palestinian Authority enact policies to make livestock product supply meet demand, that greater awareness of the importance of tagging animals is built among herders and that an assessment be conducted of the international livestock market.

    Sustainable alternative fodder production to support vulnerable herders in the West Bank. Increasing profitability of livestock production to strengthen resilience to drought and market volatility within protracted crises
    Resilience good practice

    Enduring the protracted crisis context of the West Bank and Gaza Strip as well as recurrent drought and overgrazing, herders face decreasing access to grazing land, thus increasing their dependency on imported fodder and making them more vulnerable to fodder price volatility. In an innovative effort to help mitigate the adverse impacts this situation has on the livelihoods of Palestinian herders, FAO promotes the use of hydroponic technology by vulnerable herders and their cooperatives, providin g them with a low-cost, high quality, sustainable source of fodder available year-round. This approach increases the profitability of livestock production and helps herders stay in business.
