Summary: This report outlines an Emergency Assistance Program (EAP) of priority investments and technical assistance to the Occupied Territories (OT) over the three years 1994-1996. The program is intended to provide a framework for channeling donor assistance to help meet the immediate needs of the Palestinian people and launch the OT economy on a path of sustainable growth. The objective of the EAP is to provide tangible benefits to the Palestinian population quickly, equitably, and efficiently, while laying the foundation for sustainable development over the long term. Specifically, the program is designed to: 1) emphasize short-gestation, rehabilitation and maintenance activities that make better use of existing infrastructure; 2) support a temporary program to help alleviate immediate poverty and unemployment pressures; 3) concentrate efforts on areas where living standards are especially low; 4) support investments that will help correct existing imbalances in access to services, particularly in rural areas; 5) maximize the use of local inputs, particularly skilled labor; 6) make use of all locally available capacity for program implementation; 7) emphasize training and institution-building, particularly for the management of development programs; 8) initiate feasibility studies and technical analyses to provide the basis for longer-term investments; and 9) provide the necessary mechanisms for the successful implementation and evaluation of the program.
