Humanitarian Response Plan 2017

The humanitarian community in the occupied Palestinian territory (oPt) has developed an annual humanitarian plan for the oPt every year since 2003. The Humanitarian Response Plan (HRP) primarily focuses on addressing humanitarian needs in the Gaza Strip, Area C of the West Bank and East Jerusalem, where the most vulnerable populations have been identified and where the reach of the Palestinian Authority is most limited.

The plan for 2016 focused on three strategic priorities:

Strategic Objective 1

Protect the rights of Palestinians under occupation in accordance with IHL and IHRL

Strategic Objective 2

Ensure acutely-vulnerable Palestinians under occupation in Gaza and the West Bank have access to essential services

Strategic Objective 3

Strengthen the ability of acutely-vulnerable Palestinian households to cope with protracted threats and shocks

​In addition, the HRP identifies four key cross-cutting areas of work mainstreamed throughout the above priorities:
