    Daily life in the West Bank and Gaza Strip continues to be characterized by access restrictions to natural resources, movement of goods and people and limited productive capacities. Moreover, in the Gaza Strip, recurrent conflict and free fall of the economy and services has eroded the resilience of vulnerable families and their capacity to cope. The possible exacerbation of the protracted crisis and declining funding calls for urgent early action to respond and prevent a further deterioration of the food security situation. For 2019, FAO requires USD 11.2 million to assist 48 700 people.

    The humanitarian situation in Palestine is characterized by persistent restrictions on access to natural resources, as well as on the movement of goods and people. This is exacerbated by natural and environmental hazards, such as winter storms, and the longer-term effects of climate change. The protracted crisis poses a range of protection strains on the livelihoods of Palestinians, including the destruction of productive assets and lack of access to essential inputs, services and livelihood opportunities. After the first cases of COVID-19 were confirmed in Bethlehem city on 5 March, the Palestinian Prime Minister declared a state of emergency across Palestine and imposed a lockdown that was eased on 25 May 2020. On 2 July 2020, the West Bank returned to a complete lockdown following a record number of new infections. The pandemic is currently causing a major negative shock to Palestinian socioeconomic development, putting public welfare, employment and livelihoods at risk, threatening a further deterioration in poverty and food insecurity levels, social cohesion, and financial and fiscal stability. Specifically, in addition to the public health and humanitarian implications of COVID-19, the essential health-related measures restricting the movement of people, and the associated economic slowdown, negatively affect poor and vulnerable populations that were already facing a protracted conflict/insecurity condition. In the framework of FAO’s Corporate COVID-19 Response and Recovery Programme and the United Nations Global Humanitarian Response Plan for COVID-19, FAO has revised its humanitarian response for 2020 to mitigate the effects of the pandemic and address the needs of the most vulnerable households.

    The high rate of food insecurity in Palestine is driven by poverty and unemployment. Protracted insecurity, continuing economic decline and prolonged restrictions on trade and access to markets combined with the effects of the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic have worsened the food security situation for Palestinians in 2020. Palestinian households affected by the protracted crisis and the COVID-19 pandemic need urgent support to build their resilience and enhance their food security and productive capacity.
