July 2012 "Village Profile and Needs Assessment in Jerusalem, Ramallah, and Jericho"

Posted in July 2012 "Completed Projects"

Contracting party:  Spanish Agency for International Cooperation (AECID)
Funded by:               CAD-CRS
Starting Date:             February 2011
Ending Date:               July 2012


This project, funded by the Spanish Agency for International Cooperation (AECID), aims to survey, analyze and assess the needs for development of Jerusalem, Ramallah and Jericho Governorates localities through participatory approach, creating a dynamic information system covering socio-economic, demographic, natural resources, agriculture and environmental status on locality as well as Governorate level. Several workshops are held to brainstorm the needs for each of the targeted geo-agricultural areas. The final findings focus on developing a project portfolio for different interventions, including the geographical distributions and activities. Each community is examined through the completion of a baseline survey which measures socio-economic conditions, employment,  agricultural activities, types of land use/land cover, impact of occupation practices and needs for human resources and infrastructural development, especially in agriculture activities. Consequently, an integrated, developmental and logical framework is formulated through which these needs are addressed. Additionally, ARIJ is going to develop land use/land cover GIS system through developing specialized maps on community level. Based on the resulted information, a village profile including all the socio- economic information, demographic data, developmental needs and maps is developed for each of these communities.
