As a result of electricity shortages some PMDP beneficiaries have had to cease operations and others have responded by taking actions such as adjusting working hours, operating below capacity and using more expensive sources of electricity such as generators. We urge all the parties to find a sustainable solution to increase electricity supply.</p> more like this

In October 2014, the UK pledged a further £20 million in early recovery assistance at the Gaza Reconstruction Conference in Cairo, including support for cash assistance to Palestinian refugees, mine removal and medical treatment. The UK has disbursed this pledge in its entirety. Since then the UK has provided additional support to Gaza, including supporting basic service delivery, such as health and education, through the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees (UNRWA), supporting humanitarian access, enabling reconstruction efforts and investing in job creation.</p>
