Effect of the humanitarian situation on the Palestinian population
Low food security levels as a result of lack of economic access
Rising poverty and unemployment and increased dependency on aid
decrease of quantity and quality of food intake
A recent UN-report offers a bleak picture for the urbanised areas with population growth and subsequent needs projections for the year 2020.
It states that unless the blockade is lifted and normal trade is allowed to resume there will be no fundamental change in the humanitarian situation in Gaza.

Emergency Preparedness & response
