 The United Nations Country Team (UNCT) in the occupied Palestinian territory (oPt), at its annual retreat inNovember 2011, discussed critical development and humanitarian challenges acing Palestinians in the oPt.As part o its programme o work, the UN initiated a study to see what the Gaza Strip might look like by theyear 2020 as a place in which to live. Building on what is known now, the resulting study seeks to highlightthe ormidable developmental, humanitarian and social imperatives which need to be addressed and resolved,irrespective o the political context. The document which ollows thus provides an overview o current challenges and trends in Gaza, and throughthe lens o the UN amily working in the oPt presents an extrapolation eight years orward to 2020. It is basedon a wealth o existing literature both rom within the UN and outside, and the wide range o sources used isreected as Endnotes at Annex One. The reader who seeks more in-depth inormation and analysis is encouragedto explore the literature under Reerences at Annex Two. The broad objectives o this study are to: highlight the longer-term eects and implications o currentdevelopmental and social trends and challenges aecting the Gaza Strip; raise awareness o these both locallyand internationally; and, inorm the strategic programming o the United Nations in support o the Palestinianpeople o the oPt. The document does not venture any opinion or orecast o the evolution o political events, nor does it oerprescriptive advice based on dierent political scenarios. The document does implicitly assume a peace processwhich leads ultimately to a solution o two sovereign states, Israel and Palestine, living side by side in peace andharmony.Maxwell GaylardUN Resident and Humanitarian Coordinator,on behal o the United Nations Country Team in the oPt27 August 2012

Occupied Gaza? Occupation is in their leaders rhetoric and in the arabs minds. Last time I checked, Israel had withdrawn from the area in 2005, that's 7 years ago. And the "occupation" meme is still the reason Gaza cannot even produce its own electricity. "The area has been isolated..." Last time I checked a map, Gaza has a 12 km-long border with Egypt, so why is it "isolated"?

If Gaza wants peace, get rid of the Hamas.

Gaza? Occupied? Are you kidding me? By who? By the Hamas? Or by Al-qaida? Someone forgot that in 2005 Israel destroied 25 settelments in Gaza, and ended the so called "occupation". No truth in the world.
