European Joint Strategy in support of Palestine 2021 – 2024
February 10, 2023
Since 2008 the EU, EU Member States, Norway and Switzerland have disbursed around USD 1 billion (EUR 1.24 billion) annually in official development assistance to Palestine and the Palestinians. Together, European Development Partners (EDPs) are the largest contributors of assistance to the Palestinians. This support has covered all areas (West Bank, including East Jerusalem and Area C, and the Gaza Strip) and all Palestinians (including Palestine refugees). The nature and volume of European development cooperation in Palestine is inextricably linked to the political context and the EU’s objectives with regards to the Middle East Peace Process.
