United Nations Special Coordinator's Office for the Middle East Peace Process


United Nations Special Coordinator's Office for the Middle East Peace Process

UNSCO represents the Secretary-General and leads the UN system in all political and diplomatic efforts related to the peace process, including in the Middle East Quartet. UNSCO also coordinates the humanitarian and development work of UN agencies and programmes in the occupied Palestinian territory, in support of the Palestinian Authority and the Palestinian people. UN Secretary-General António Guterres is deeply committed to peace in the Middle East. The UN works for the creation of an independent State of Palestine living side-by-side in peace with the State of Israel, and a just, lasting and comprehensive resolution to the Arab-Israeli conflict, in accordance with relevant UN resolutions and international law.



We are looking for a snapshot of the conditions of four vulnerable groups in Palestine to enhance livelihood opportunities for Palestinians and provide social protection for those in need.. The idea would be to look at the whole picture but also to disaggregate by area, i.e. West Bank and Gaza. We want to see if there are any meaningful patterns we are not seeing right away.

The selected visualization will be featured in the UN Development Group's silofighters blog:

The link below takes you to a folder called DOCO_DATA. In it is one excel file with four worksheets, one for each group. There is also a word file with the survey questionnaires for the four groups. The survey questionnaires provide details on each variable. 

The last column of each excel worksheet indicates whether the location is in Gaza or West Bank.
