Following the fruitful experience of GVC and FAO in partnership with PHG, UAWC and LRC a second project is ongoing targeting another crucial area in the West Bank: The Jordan Valley. 65 communities in area C within Jericho, Nablus, Ramallah and Tubas governorates are included and being investigated leading to the production of a carnet of project profiles. This new intervention, once again to be implemented by GVC and FAO in partnership with PHG and UAWC, is replicating the previous experience, taking also in consideration new aspects of crucial importance for the area, such as agriculture and irrigation. The Jordan Valley is both considered the food basket for the oPt as primary agricultural source and oppressed by pressure of settlements, military bases and closures. According to these relevancies has been implemented in 2010 a short term intervention, funded by UNICEF, to identify a list of target vulnerable communities to be analyzed in the Jordan Valley. A set of basic data have been collected, through field surveys, such as population, number of animals, main income sources, water sources and WASH related situation in the communities, with particular focus on drinking water. In the same time the Project Officer has carried a literature review to build a map of already existing material from previous projects in the same area.

The final report of this intervention is now finalized and available to be shared:
