Background:
The United Nations Human Settlements Program, UN-Habitat, is the United Nations Agency for Human Settlements. It is mandated by the UN General Assembly to promote socially and environmentally sustainable towns and cities with the goal of providing adequate shelter for all.
UN-Habitat is leading the implementation of a 8-months DFID funded Project: “Building Blocks-Supporting State-building through Neighbourhood Planning in Gaza”  in partnership with the Palestinian Housing Council (PHC) and Norwegian Refugee Council (NRC).

The 2014 conflict in Gaza resulted in an unprecedented level of loss and human suffering. A further 13% of the housing stock was damaged or destroyed, including some 20,000 homes totally destroyed or rendered uninhabitable, leaving over 100,000 people displaced. Significant reconstruction efforts have not yet begun, and have largely not considered the need for urban planning in advance of construction.

The overall objective of the project is to contribute to state-building in Palestine by improving national-local government and local government-community collaboration through a neighbourhood spatial planning process.  In essence, the project aims to support overall state-building ambitions through a technical entry point of urban planning and provision of a new forum for dialogue and coordination between National government, local government and citizens.
