Traded 400 tons of olive oil cross border + trained 57 Israeli and Palestinian farmers.

Olive Oil Without Borders

Project Aim

This project builds relationships of trust, mutual understanding, and collaboration through economic cooperation between Israeli and Palestinian olive oil sectors. As olive farming is a cornerstone of local rural economies, it is woven into many aspects of rural society and rural social relations and therefore has meaning beyond economic value.

How It Works

The project involves a series of activities to help groups of olive farmers, producers, and distributors to identify shared interests, common constraints, and joint opportunities and to facilitate win-win solutions through collaboration. Activities include training, technical assitance and material support as well as advocacy for policy reform and institutional development.The project provides a structured, depoliticized framework for creating dialogue within and among seemingly disparate social and economic groups.This project is supported by USAID, and is being implemented by the Near East Foundation in partnership with the Peres Center for Peace and the Palestinian Center for Research and Development.
