The funds contributed by the governments of Norway, Australia, Japan, Kuwait and the United Kingdom, will help support the urgent budget needs of the Palestinian Authority (PA), providing inter alia support for ongoing macroeconomic and public financial management reforms.

It is a central component of a World Bank’s effort to support the ongoing Palestinian Reform and Development Plan. Currently, the PRDP-MDTF donors are the governments of Australia, France, Kuwait, Norway, the United Kingdom, and Japan.
With the new tranche release, the PRDP-MDTF will have disbursed about US$1.36 billion.
