Since March 2009 the United Nations Country Team (UNCT) has made support to Palestinian state-building a fundamental goal of its work in the occupied Palestinian territory (oPt). This commitment has been given new momentum and focus though the array of PA documents focused on state-building, and most recently the Palestinian Authority’s Programme of the 13th Government: Ending the Occupation, Establishing the State. The UN’s support to these efforts includes programming that is directly implemented by/through the UN, the provision of technical assistance to the PA and perhaps most importantly the development of those Palestinian capacities that further strengthen the foundation of a future Palestinian state.
