FAO provides emergency support to herders in the Gaza Strip

9 September 2014 -- Every man, woman and child of the Gaza Strip – nearly 1.8 million people – has been directly affected by the recent escalation in conflict and needs some form of humanitarian aid. During seven weeks of intense violence, from 7 July to 26 August, more than 2 100 Palestinians died (70 percent of them civilians) and nearly 500 000 fled their homes. The Palestinian Ministry of Agriculture estimates damages to the agriculture sector at USD 550 million.

FAO, with generous support from the Government of Canada, is providing herders in Gaza with agricultural inputs (water tanks, animal fodder, concentrates) to sustain the surviving animals for 45 days.
