Position context and key challenges

ACTED started its activities in the Occupied Palestinian Territory in May 2007, with a food security programme in the West Bank. ACTED Occupied Palestinian Territory plans to expand its mission through agriculture, water supply, and economic development projects. Fostering sustainable development of Palestinian civil society while addressing the humanitarian needs of vulnerable rural communities - ACTED’s goal for 2011 has been to capitalise on its previous engagement in agricultural development in the West Bank by supporting the development of the cooperative sector. In parallel, and based on the developments in the region, we have maintained our focus on addressing the remaining humanitarian needs and assisting the most vulnerable populations in the West Bank. In coordination with the Palestinian Authority Strategic Plan of the Cooperative sector 2011-2013, ACTED has sought to strengthen rural cooperatives in the governorates of Salfit and Qalqilya. In addition, ACTED enhanced its emergency livelihoods intervention programme, providing much needed assistance to the most vulnerable rural Palestinian populations in the West Bank.
