Thousands of people are still struggling to access safe water, sanitation and basic healthcare following substantial damage and destruction of infrastructure in Gaza.
A total of $5.4 billion was pledged at the Cairo International Conference on Palestine, “Reconstructing Gaza”, on 12 October 2014; however, a week later and these have not yet materialised into firm contributions. In fact, no additional humanitarian contributions/commitments to Gaza have been reported since our last update one month ago. The revised US$929 million strategic response plan (SRP) for the occupied Palestinian territory (oPt) is still only 39% funded at US$362 million.
This crisis briefing paper provides an update of funding to the humanitarian response in Gaza since July 2014.
