The Humanitarian Community estimate that in 2023, approximately 2.1 million Palestinians across the OPT will require some form of humanitarian assistance. The humanitarian conditions created by OPT’s multi-dimensional crisis continue to impact all parts of the territory and affect every aspect of Palestinian life. Palestinians are in their 55th year of grappling with the safety, security, financial and emotional consequences of occupation. The resulting political, social, and economic shocks have reverberated across the territory, further deepening humanitarian needs and deterioration in the protection situation. The outlook for 2023 remains profoundly uncertain in light of increasing violence, political developments, and an absence of forward movement on sustainable peace solutions. Without political solutions, sustainable development will be hampered, and humanitarian assistance will continue to be required.
