Union of Agricultural Work Committees (UAWC)

The Union of Agricultural Work Committees (UAWC) is the largest agricultural development institution in Palestine. UAWC was established in 1986 in response to the vulnerable socio-political circumstance faced by Palestinian farmers, as a result of the Israeli occupational policies.
Since its establishment, UAWC has steadily gained the confidence of a range of very influential international donors to develop projects and programs, which annually benefit more than 30.000 small-scale farmers, all located within the vulnerable and conflict affected regions of the West Bank and Gaza Strip.
Their projects vary from agricultural land development, implementation of water supplies, capacity building, development of rural women’s livelihoods, legal awareness, emergency response, and other agricultural development projects.
