Gaza’s economy has been decimated both by frequent escalations of violence and by the Israeli-imposed blockade, which has severely restricted the movement of goods and people since 2008 and hindered recovery from the devastating conflict of 2014. This case study shows how Oxfam aims to contribute to economic recovery in Gaza, moving from emergency aid toward longer term and more sustainable development in order to better meet the needs of vulnerable women and men and facilitate economic recovery.
