Emergency assistance to the Occupied Territories : Investment program (Inglês)

The economy of the Occupied Territories (OT) is under severe strain. Income levels have stagnated over the past decade; unemployment and underemployment levels are unacceptably high; public infrastructure and social services are grossly overstretched; the fragile natural resources base is threatened with serious damage; and many local bodies and institutions are experiencing financial crisis. The origins of the present crisis lie mainly in the skewed pattern of past development, which resulted in serious distortions in the economy of the OTs. Structural imbalances in the economy are manifest in its heavy dependence on outside sources of employment, an unusually low degree of industrialization, a trade pattern heavily dominated by trade with Israel, a large trade deficit, and serious inadequacies in the provision of public infrastructure and services. The September 1993 Agreement on the Declaration of Principles and the prospect of significant development assistance from the international community provide a window of opportunity for addressing the structural ills of the Occupied Territories' economy. This report is intended to provide an effective framework for channeling donor assistance to the Occupied Territories to help meet the immediate needs of the Palestinian people and to help launch the OT economy on a path of sustainable growth.
