Emergency food assistance to the non-refugee population in Gaza Strip

This Operation has been modified as per Budget Revision 5 (see below).

Six decades of political instability, four years of blockade and major destruction of private and public property during military confrontations, have led to the disintegration of the productive economy in the Gaza Strip. Over 50 percent of people in Gaza are unable to meet their daily food requirements without support due to few employment opportunities, low incomes and limited economic access to food. In spite of a partial relaxation on import restrictions since June 2010, an ongoing ban on exports and on some imports has hampered recovery and improvements in 2011, and food insecurity levels are likely to persist throughout 2012.
