Arable Land in Palestine: Reasons of Decline and Policies for Protection
Resource Item Types: 
Palestine Economic Policy Research Institute (MAS)
Arable land in Palestine suffers from a variety of problems, largely as a consequence of the Israeli occupation. These problems arise invariably as a result of access constraints, land confiscation, settlement activities, the construction and expansion of the separation wall, ‘security’ related land closures, and limited water allocation. However, these specific issues have been explored previously by a number of research institutions. Consequently, and with the desire to advance the discussion of this topic, this study will focus on a number of less obvious challenges.
