Assessing and improving infrastructure sector in Palestine

UNOPS has conducted an eight week assessment of the infrastructure sector in Palestine. ​The study compares local infrastructure activities against 29 examples of international best practice, with the aim of identifying gaps and improving delivery.

Palestine is the second state in the world, after the United Kingdom, to undergo such an assessment, which will expand government capacity in infrastructure works and produce significant savings on current and future projects.

UNOPS Jerusalem Operations Centre Director, Nicholas O’Regan said of the Global Productivity Index: “Coupling our mandate in infrastructure with our commitment towards state building, we have conducted an infrastructure diagnostic to provide the Government of Palestine with a roadmap to improve their delivery systems and support development. The index makes Palestine a forerunner in infrastructure best practices.”
