The 2015 Emergency Appeal addresses the priority humanitarian needs of Palestine refugees in the Gaza Strip and West Bank, including East Jerusalem. The Agency will shape its response along three common strategic objectives across the fields: prevent further deterioration in the food security of the most vulnerable and food-insecure refugees by providing emergency food and livelihood support to families who are food insecure or facing acute shocks; promote, protect and uphold the rights of refugees facing acute crises, violations of human rights/IHL and barriers to accessing services; and implement the Agency humanitarian response effectively and in coordination with relevant stakeholders.
Under this common approach, each geographic field implements unique intervention plans in recognition of the different operating contexts in Gaza and the West Bank, including East Jerusalem. Integrated intervention plans comprise all main sectors and clusters of emergency aid in the occupied Palestinian territory. The emergency requirements are separate from core UNRWA services and reconstruction for development efforts, and amount to US$ 414,435,436.
