Gaza One Year After Report
Early Recovery and Reconstruction Needs Assessment
This report assesses the recovery in Gaza from the damage to property, infrastructure, and the economy since January 2009 and details what remains to be done. The report does not deal with the enduring human cost of Cast Lead, which left 1,417 people dead, 5,380 injured, around 600 disabled and many more traumatized, or the decades of under development and conflict which preceded it. The findings of this report beg the question on the most appropriate responses necessary to provide the support required for Gazans to maintain their minimum human dignity.
