"This agreement is intended to support the Palestinian people through UNDP in a number of villages, towns, communities and cities to implement small infrastructure projects in various fields, whether it is in education, health, roads, environment, agricultural roads and others. In general, it is expected to meet the needs of the priorities of the targeted areas,” said Prime Minister Shtayyeh following the signing of the agreement.
