PUI intend to widen its scope of intervention in the West Bank to achieve structural improvements. In order to do so, it needs to better systematize existing information and better understand the different livelihoods opportunities available in the West Bank in a comprehensive manner, linking both protection threats and environmental challenges. Thus, the livelihood study will enable to identify a number of relevant LRRD strategy to link our current protection activities with a longer-term solution and relevant livelihood activities that will contribute to building the resilience of targeted populations and to avoid forcible transfer.
