Amounts requested and planning figures will be updated if the situation on the ground requires and are valid as of 1 September 2014. The Gaza Crisis Appeal requirements are reflected in revised requirements for the 2014 Strategic Response Plan for the oPt.
As with the SRP (former CAP), the Gaza Crisis Appeal has been prepared in close coordination with the Palestinian Government and draws upon priorities jointly identified as result of the need assessment process between the humanitarian community and the government ministries. The Gaza Crisis Appeal is a key component in the Government's multi-phased strategy for response, as laid out in the Early Recovery and Reconstruction Plan 2014-2017, which will be launched ahead of the donors' conference in October 2014.
As part of the Early Recovery and Reconstruction Plan the Government will initiate rapid and sustainable recovery with select priority interventions—particularly in areas beyond the scope of the humanitarian appeal, such as the private sector, utilities and essential government services - under the "Bridging to Recovery" Initiative in the coming weeks.
