PROTECTION

Protection is what UNRWA does to safeguard and advance the rights of Palestine refugees. UNRWA undertakes a broad range of activities for the protection of Palestine refugees in the Agency’s five fields of operation within the scope of its mandate. The Agency’s protection mandate specifically addresses the rights of vulnerable groups – women, children and persons with disabilities.

INFRASTRUCTURE AND CAMP IMPROVEMENT

Of the some 5 million Palestine refugees registered with our Agency, roughly one third live in 58 recognized refugee camps. Over the years, these camps have transformed from temporary 'tent cities' into hyper-congested masses of multi-storey buildings with narrow alleys, characterized by high concentrations of poverty and extreme overcrowding. We adopt an integrated, comprehensive, participatory and community-driven improvement of the built environment of Palestine refugee camps, utilizing urban planning tools.
