Reconstructing Gaza - Donor Pledges
At the request of Norway, as Chair of the Ad-Hoc Liaison Committee (AHLC) and the Palestinian Authority (PA), the World Bank is leading a stocktaking exercise to assess the disbursement progress of funding pledged at the “Cairo Conference on Palestine - Reconstructing Gaza”.
The Conference was organized by Egypt, Norway and the Palestinian Authority and was held in Cairo on October 12th, 2014 to raise aid for rebuilding Gaza following the July-August 2014 war. The financial support is to be provided over a period of three years (2014-2017) to strengthen the Palestinian Authority’s ability to assume its responsibility in the recovery and reconstruction of the Gaza Strip.
Total pledges announced at Cairo conference amounted to USD 5 billion to the Palestinian territories, of which USD 3.5 intended to support Gaza. The World Bank will monitor the delivery of pledges, disbursement and implementation progress. The analysis will be included in the World Bank’s economic report presented at the AHLC meeting twice a year.
Information provided on the site was consolidated with the Ministry of Finance and Planning and the National Office for Gaza Reconstruction. Information will be updated regularly based on inputs by donors.
