Gaza Reconstruction Mechanism
b. Enable the Gazan private sector;
c. Assure donors that their investments in construction work in Gaza will be implemented without delay;
d. Address Israeli security concerns related to the use of construction and other 'dual use' material.
ii. Large scale public and private sector works. Projects will largely be identified based on the GoP National Early Recovery and Reconstruction Plan for Gaza. Following the preparation of basic engineering materials (schematic drawings and bills of quantity), information will be registered in the central database for subsequent approval by Gol. GoP licensed contractors undertaking these works will then be able to procure the needed quantities of building materials, for public infrastructure (e.g. hospitals and schools) and for the private sector (e.g. factories) directly from GoP-approved vendors in Gaza. A more detailed public fact sheet for the private sector in Gaza will soon be made available.
4. Progress to date:
b. In addition to the US$ 500 million that the UN has or was in the process of implementing in advance of the conflict this summer, a further approval of US$ 100m was received in September 2014.
c. In keeping with the agreement, construction material is expected to enter the Gaza Strip shortly to support repairs of damaged homes and private property — a priority area.
