Developing partnerships for the Future

The donor community, since 1994 has chosen UNDP’s Programme of Assistance to the Palestinian People (PAPP) as one of its most reliable implementation partners for development activities throughout the West Bank, including East Jerusalem, and Gaza Strip. UNDP/PAPP’s responsiveness, flexibility, transparency, and its strong relations with the Palestinian Authority, Palestinian civil society and other UN agencies, are major reasons for its good relations with the donor community. Bilateral discussions are held to build on existing initiatives and expand incentives for working together to optimize resources and outreach.

Funds contributed either by donors or from UNDP's own resources are grants that do not have to be repaid by the Palestinian Authority. UNDP/PAPP operates under international rules of financial management, control and auditing, and as an international public institution, its operations are fully transparent.

  • The total donor contribution to the Palestinian People through UNDP/PAPP from 1993 till the end of August 2013 was over USD 1.1 billion
  • The total expenditure for 2012 reached over USD 63 million
  • PAPP’s core resources are at USD 3,188,000
  • PAPP’s non-core resources total USD 60,298,000
