National Agricultural Sector Strategy (2017-2022)
This document sets Palestine's agricultural strategy over the period 2017-2022. It defines overarching goals and sectoral objectives. The document notably seeks to increase resilience to climate change, by 1) developing resources and policies for the Risk Prevention and Agricultural Insurance Fund and 2) promoting innovation and adaptive solutions.
Further specific objectives include: 1) take measures and arrangements to adapt with or avoid the negative impact of climate change and natural disasters, particularly high temperatures and fluctuating precipitation or declining rain water, 2) intensify efforts of research and official institutions, local authorities and centres to protect the forests and natural reserves, as well as organise and develop pastures, protect agricultural biodiversity in all environmental areas in Palestine, and 3) protect agricultural lands from urban expansion, especially in plain areas and high value agricultural lands.
