Humanitarian Atlas 2015

The Humanitarian Atlas 2015

OCHA's Humanitarian Atlas 2015 features dozens of West Bank and Gaza Strip maps, including maps zooming in on every Palestinian governorate. The maps indicate locations of Palestinian cities, towns and communities, Israeli settlements, physical barriers impeding the movement of people, restricted and non-restricted roads and more.

In addition, the Atlas includes thematic maps highlighting protection of civilians concerns and humanitarian needs. For the West Bank, these maps highlight the level of access to land and services, settler violence and incidents of demolitions in every region. Thematic maps of Gaza also cover damage to facilities sustained during the 2014 hostilities, the chronic energy crisis and the locations of centres responding to people’s humanitarian needs.
