UNDP’s Programme of Assistance to the Palestinian People (PAPP) was established through a resolution adopted by the UN General Assembly on 20 December 1978, calling upon UNDP “to improve the economic and social conditions of the Palestinian people”. Since its establishment, UNDP/PAPP has delivered over USD 1.7 billion in development assistance to the Palestinian People.
UNDP’s Palestinian Programmatic Framework (PPF) 2023-2025 sets out a vision of “a world in which all Palestinians can enjoy a dignified life and fulfil their own vision of a unified, peaceful and free society”. The PPF is centred around the concept of ‘Transformative Resilience’ and its three elements: a cohesive Palestinian identity, self-reliance, and ownership and leadership.
Over the next three years, UNDP/PAPP will build on its experiences and achievements to make critical contributions to the priorities defined by the Palestinian national development plans and the UN Sustainable Development Cooperation Framework (UNSDCF), through interventions in three programmatic priority areas: i) democratic governance and quality services; ii) inclusive economic opportunities; iii) sustainable natural resources management.
The UNDP, UN Women and UNICEF Joint Programme “Promoting the Rule of Law in Palestine” (2018-2023) aims to enhance the capacities of and public confidence in rule of law institutions and strengthening access to justice, security and protection services, especially for women, girls and children. The Joint Programme works on both the ‘supply’ and ‘demand’ side of enforcing the rule of law, through enhancing service delivery, building resilient justice and security institutions, and strengthening the public’s ability to access such services and hold duty-bearers to account.
The Joint Programme recognizes the need for its partners to have robust monitoring and evaluation systems in place in order to effectively measure results, detect implementation problems and adapt accordingly to ensure that the delivery stays on track. As part of its data generating processes, the Joint Programme therefore built its internal database that consists of data gathered from direct beneficiaries of the programme activities. Data generating is a continuous process that requires daily follow up with partners and beneficiaries and assuring sound gathering tools. In order to maintain proper updating of the beneficiaries database, the joint programme intends to benefit from interns services, who will be mainly in charge of liaison with partners and beneficiaries, data gathering and entry to statistical software. To this end, UNDP is soliciting applications from qualified students or graduates to join the UNDP’s internship programme.
