    Strengthening agricultural producer organizations (POs) and cooperatives has been recognized as a key way forward to support farmers in the West Bank and Gaza Strip (WBGS) and, in turn, promote food security, income generation and private sector development. Agriculture in the WBGS is characterized by smallholdings; there are just over 110 000 of these, and 90 percent are classified as small or medium-sized. the annual report on states that have limited or absent governance capability and are vulnerable to conflict or collapse. Yet, few would deny the extreme fragility of the WBGS given the conflict situation, a deadlocked political process and failing state and institutional performance. Access restrictions to natural resources, movement restrictions affecting goods and people, a longstanding economic food-access crisis, high unemployment rates, the breakdown of livelihoods, the COVID-19 pandemic and insufficient institutional capacity to respond have all negatively impacted the lives of the population. The key challenge is therefore how to increase the effectiveness of support for POs in an environment where citizens do not suffer only from poverty, economic exclusion and inequality but experience high levels of repeated or cyclical violence amidst weak support institutions and poor governance capability.

    In the West Bank and Gaza Strip, thousands of Palestinians continue to be affected by the protracted crisis, repeated shocks, restrictions on movement of goods and people, limited productive capacities and lack of economic opportunities. These have eroded the resilience of vulnerable families and their capacity to cope. Given the humanitarian impact of the protracted protection crisis, urgent assistance is required to strengthen livelihood resilience and improve the food security of vulnerable people.

    In the West Bank and Gaza Strip (WBGS), recurrent conflict and restrictions over natural resources, markets and services are depriving families of their basic needs for survival and placing their ability to cope under severe strain. Food security and livelihoods have been directly impacted by controls on the movement of people and goods; impediments to construction and infrastructure investment; confiscation of land and natural resources; and the direct destruction of homes, crops, livestock as sets and infrastructure. Unable to produce food or earn income, many are becoming dependent on external aid. Small-scale farmers, herders and fishers in the WBGS are among the hardest hit populations, despite the potential of agriculture to reduce reliance on imported food, minimize vulnerability to international price hikes and increase economic access to food by enhancing employment and income. The loss of Palestinian land, limited access to markets, destruction of key agricultural assets (i ncluding water resources), and the separation of farmers from their fields and fishers from the sea continue to sever the rural poor from their livelihood.
