Highlights 2012

  • The 2012 CAP received 71 per cent funding, up from 57 per cent in 2011, placing it among the best-funded CAPs globally. Over 1.7 million people were assisted.
  • Following the end of the escalation in hostilities in Gaza and southern Israel in November, OCHA and humanitarian partners launched the first inter-agency UN and NGO initial rapid needs assessment. OCHA-led assessment teams visited the 21 most affected municipalities in Gaza. The findings helped mobilize US$8.2 million under the CERF rapid response window. 
  • OCHA contributed to policy discussions and Member States’ positions on the impact of occupation-related restrictions and impediments affecting Palestinian communities. OCHA’s information and analysis on Area C was sought by donors and actors. This included the Palestinian Authority, which outlined its first strategy for Area C to the Ad Hoc Liaison Committee.
