UAWC and PECDAR sign a partnership agreement to support agricultural production


 The Union of Agricultural Work Committees (UAWC) and the Palestinian Economic Council for Development and Reconstruction (PECDAR) signed a partnership agreement with a total value of 800,000 dollars to implement projects to support and develop food production and encourage agricultural production in the south-east of Hebron and Qarawat Bani Zeid in Ramallah governorate, that is funded by the Arab Monetary Fund and through the Islamic Development Bank.

The project aims to improve the economic situation of marginalized families and increase the cultivated area in Palestine, which will contribute to the development and improvement of the agricultural sector and improve small farmers' incomes by improving their agricultural productivity.

The project will reclaim 200 dunums of lands, build retaining walls and stone chains with a length of 15,000 m, rehabilitate and excavate 26 agricultural wells and open agricultural roads with a length of 27 km, as well as provide farmers with their needs of seedlings.

From UAWC's part, Eng. Fuad Abu Saif, UAWC's director, confirmed that this project comes in line with UAWC's strategic objectives to strengthen farmers' steadfastness of their lands, and protect the lands and natural resources from the threat of confiscation.

From PECDAR's part, Dr. Mohammed Ashtia, president of PECDAR, stressed on the importance of this convention in promoting one of the most important elements of the economy, which is the land, at a time when the Israeli occupation forces their control over production inputs and increase their confiscation of land and water resources to expand their settlements over our land and hinder any possibility of real development.

In addition, Dr. Ashtia stressed on the notion that the development of agricultural sector will preserve our  land and water resources, thus creating an effective resistance component in the face of Israeli settlement and thus, creating the building block for the end of the Israeli occupation
