UNDP Progamme of Assistance to the Palestinian People (PAPP)

United Nations Development Programme’s Programme of Assistance to the Palestinian People (PAPP) derives its mandate from the United Nations General Assembly Resolution 33/147 of 20 December 1978. Called upon by United Nations Member States in that year, UNDP was requested “to improve the economic and social conditions of the Palestinian people by identifying their social and economic needs and by establishing concrete projects to that end”. UNDP/PAPP is a responsive development agency that works together with the Palestine’s State institutions and directly with the Palestinian people to fulfill their aspiration for sustainable human development based on self-determination, equality and freedom.
