Assistance to the Palestinian People

The Assistance to the Palestinian People Unit (APPU) was established in 1985, with a specific mandate to monitor and investigate the social and economic impact of policies of the Israeli occupation authorities in the Palestinian territory.

The establishment of APPU crowned the secretariat´s pioneering work on the Palestinian economy which commenced in 1979 upon the request of member States.

This makes UNCTAD the first international organization to systematically examine the Palestinian economy´s multifaceted development predicament.

Drawing on the secretariat´s global mandate, APPU has been actively responding to official requests for technical assistance by Palestinian public and civil society institutions, thereby positioning itself as a focal point for the interrelated treatment of Palestinian trade, finance and economic development.

 
 

UNCTAD´s work on the Palestinian economy is centred on the secretariat´s three main interrelated pillars of activities: Research and analysis, Technical cooperation and Supporting intergovernmental consensus-building in this area of work.

Activities under each pillar respond to the evolving needs of the Palestinian people within four programmatic clusters:

  • Development strategies and trade policies

  • Trade facilitation and logistics

  • Public finance modernization and reform

  • Enterprise, investment and competition
