Livelihoods Capacity and Needs Assessment of Vulnerable Households in the Gaza Strip
Throughout 2019 to 2021, Diakonie Katastrophenhilfe in Gaza has collaborated with the Palestine Association for Education and Environmental Protection (PAEEP), a registered local non-profit organization. To further expand the evidence base for the design
of future projects, Diakonie Katastrophenhilfe and PAEEP designed and implemented a comprehensive, mixed-methods assessment of vulnerability, household economy, and livelihoods in the Gaza Strip between April and May 2021.
The assessment focused on identifying both the root causes of vulnerability, as well as the means and mechanisms by which vulnerable households can sustainably meet their basic needs through enhanced livelihoods. The assessment therefore served to tie core vulnerability to findings on livelihoods capacities, adding more context to existing evidence on vulnerability.
