NRC seeks to fill one CCCM/UDOC officer position
On 7th July 2014, the Israeli army launched a large military operation in the Gaza Strip, code named “Protective Edge”, with the stated objective of stopping Palestinian rocket firing at southern Israel and destroying the military infrastructure of Hamas and other armed groups. Destruction was widespread. More than 2,000 Palestinians were killed and there was massive displacement. Almost a year on, up to 100,000 people remain displaced - an estimated figure based on the number of buildings destroyed.
NRC believes that building the capacity and working through existing local government structures is vital with respect to early and successful recovery, particularly for those neighborhoods that suffered wide -scale destruction. In Gaza, NRC is currently piloting an Urban Displacement outside Camps (UDOC) project with support from the Global CCCM Cluster. The office is currently working with five of the worst -affected municipalities to help them profile IDP populations, to effectively communicate and provide relevant information to the affected population, and to facilitate effective forums to ensure timely and coordinated service delivery that includes community participation. NRC believes this will help pave the way towards reconstruction that itself will only be successful with meaningful community participation at all stages. The project will expand through 2015 to include more municipalities prioritizing the worst-affected areas.
