Strengthening the food security coordination platform in the State of Palestine

The Food Security Sector (FSS) in Palestine was created in December 2012 to establish a food coordination mechanism in Palestine. It covers the food security continuum from humanitarian to development and includes stakeholders from the three former sectors which have combined into one: food assistance, agriculture and cash for work. The newly formed FSS is now the primary source of information and analysis on the food security situation in Palestine, and it coordinates humanitarian/development food security strategy and operations. The FSS aims to build stronger partnerships to support sustainable, comprehensive, and locally-owned food security interventions in Palestine. In order to achieve this, the FSS relies on both humanitarian and development funding streams, local expertise while also leveraging the comparative advantages of a wide range of NGOs, civil society and international organizations.
