Background

report Oxfam

Gaza's dairy sector has been severely damaged by Israel’s separation policy, blockade and three rounds of hostilities. The sector is now highly dependent on imports for production and consumption and is unable to compete with imported products. However, there are opportunities for the sector to grow and reduce its dependence on external markets. This requires donors to urgently invest in the sector to effectively support efforts to develop it, and the local authorities to build the capacity of the sector and help create a competitive environment for investment.

Humanitarian Context

Many poor Yemenis do not have adequate access to essential services to protect them, or a social safety net to catch them when disaster strikes .Escalating conflict since Mach,2015 left an estimated 18.8 million people in Yemen in need for some kind of humanitarian or protection assistance, including 10.3 million who are in acute need (OCHA 2016) . The recent crisis has sent prices soaring while most households lost their source of income and farmers are unable to fuel their generators to pump water to their fields.
