UNRWA – Ear-marked Funding for Innovative and/or OD-related Projects

Project completed

The overall objective is to positively impact the efficiency and effectiveness of UNRWA’s service delivery by providing ear-marked funding for innovative and/or OD-related projects within the Agency’s framework for sustaining change. These projects have the potential to transform the service delivery of the Agency, and thus reinforce the impact of SDC’s financial contribution towards UNRWA’s General Fund, out of which the near-totality of service delivery is funded.
