Occupied Palestinian Territories

The blockade of the Gaza strip and major escalations in hostilities in the occupied Palestinian Territories have inflicted large-scale destruction on Gaza’s economy, productive assets and infrastructure. In 2016 REACH supported the Shelter Cluster in evaluating the outcomes and impact of the provision of emergency, transitional, and permanent shelter assistance in response to the 2014 conflict in Gaza. The outcomes of the assessment informed the designing of the response of the Shelter Cluster and informed the Humanitarian Needs Overview and Humanitarian Response Plan in 2016.
