USAID increases access to clean water and improves wastewater management in both the West Bank and Gaza. USAID increases household connections to safe drinking water, improves hygiene practices, and strengthens disaster preparedness. These efforts improve human health, environmental health, and quality of life for Palestinians in vulnerable communities.

USAID is currently doing this through the following activity:

Gaza Household WASH Activity

$9 million • Implemented by Global Communities • 2021-2024

The Gaza Household WASH activity increases access to facilities, including sewage pump stations, water wells, and water desalination plants,  and services for safe domestic water, improving household and community sanitation, and enhancing emergency preparedness.

Palestinian Community and Infrastructure Development (PCID)

$100 million • Implemented by the American Near East Refugee Aid (ANERA) • 2013-2022

USAID, through the Palestinian Community and Infrastructure Development (PCID) activity, works with rural governments, local councils, and grass-roots organizations to identify and construct small-scale community infrastructure needs in the water, transportation, and energy sectors, as well as public facilities and parks.
