Since 2007, the siege of Gaza's territory contributed to the development of a non-sustainable economy, dependant on foreign aid and underground trade.

The closure of the tunnels by Egypt in July 2013 hampers the few remaining drivers of economic growth in the Gaza strip.

With the escalation of unemployment, household food insecurity in Gaza is susceptible to further increases.

The Socio-Economic and Food Security (SEFSec) survey is part of a broader monitoring system in the occupied Palestinian territory (oPt) that is led by the Palestinian Central Bureau of Statistics (PCBS). The purpose of the SEFSec is to identify changes in the living conditions of Palestinian households by annually monitoring key socio-economic and food security indicators. The SEFSec addresses a need for annual monitoring information to complement the less frequent but more detailed Palestinian Expenditure and Consumption Survey (PECS). This initiative is supported by the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO), the United Nations Works and Relief Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East (UNRWA) and the World Food Programme (WFP) in close partnership with PCBS.
The following report provides a summary of the basic socio-economic and food security findings of the SEFSec survey conducted in 2011 with comparisons to data available from the 2009 and 2010 SEFSec surveys. Note that macro-economic data are extracted from secondary data sources.

The Socio-Economic and Food Security (SEFSec) survey is part of a broader monitoring system in the occupied Palestinian territory (oPt) to be institutionalized within the Palestinian Central Bureau of Statistics (PCBS). The purpose of the SEFSec is to gauge changes in the living conditions of Palestinian households by monitoring socio-economic and food security indicators which emerged out of a need for timely information complementing the Palestinian Expenditure and Consumption Survey (PECS). This initiative is supported by the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) and the World Food Programme (WFP) in collaboration with PCBS. Similar to the 2009 SEFSec, the survey con-ducted in 2010 provides an update on a series of indicators including:

- Food security (food acquisition, dietary diversity, Household Food Insecurity Access Scale);

- Income and consumption/expenditure patterns;

- Coping mechanisms.
