V. Funds and programmes
Programme of Assistance to the Palestinian People
46. Building on the results of previous years, the Programme of Assistance to the Palestinian People (PAPP) continued to be an important development partner of the Palestinian Authority and the Palestinian people in 2001. PAPP continued to provide technical support in areas such as governance, environment and poverty alleviation and developed emergency employment programmes, which created jobs and enabled the rehabilitation of damaged infrastructure. The national UNV modality also allowed PAPP to provide employment opportunities for many young graduates from universities.
47. PAPP delivered a record $40 million of development and emergency assistance to the Palestinian people in 2001. New partnerships have been forged with financial contributions received from Germany, Luxembourg and the Islamic Development Bank. The traditional major donors of PAPP, in particular Italy, Japan, Sweden and the United States Agency for International Development, also kept up their commitment to PAPP by providing funding for long-term development activities.
