    This learning brief documents the main lessons drawn from the West Bank and Gaza Strip country investment implemented from 2018 to 2022 by the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) and its partners. It provides an overview of the role of solar energy solutions in promoting structural transformations in the agriculture sector. This learning brief showcases key learning on the programmatic approach supporting the adoption and expansion of solar energy solutions to enhance the food security and livelihoods resilience of vulnerable farming, herding and fishing households in the Gaza Strip. The collaborative and forward-looking approach of this project was achieved by bringing together a diverse range of stakeholders from the local and national levels, and actively fostering ownership from all parties. The project’s approach paved the way to more sustainably tackling the energy crisis in the Gaza Strip and building a resilient and thriving agriculture sector by: • addressing shorter- and longer-term needs and priorities across the sector; and • combining a range of support modalities, from technical assistance for the operationalization of solar energy systems, to policy dialogue for the institutionalization of the technology.
