Stimulating technology markets to tackle urban unemployment

Insights from the Occupied Palestinian Territories


An overview of the complexities involved in Market Systems Development in the Occupied Palestinian Territories including:

  • a struggling economy shackled by absence of sovereignty
  • restrictions on movement of goods and labour
  • a high population growth
  • GDP susceptible to crises and conflict
  • high donor dependence
  • high unemployment

This is the first of four presentations on Jobs & urban growth from IT services in Occupied Palestinian Territories presented at the DCED-BEAM Nairobi seminar in February 2018.
