During 2011, 58 out of 78 infrastructure projects funded by the international community in Area C were approved. Overall, 119 projects were approved in Area C. The total value of these projects was approximately USD 300 million. Priority is given to projects for building and renovating schools and clinics, which appear on the lists of the Quartet and the US Team.
The international community's contribution in this area is important. These projects, primarily in the areas of roads, environment, water, infrastructure, and agriculture contribute to the community's well-being and protect the environment. Unfortunately, many of the projects that have been approved have not yet been implemented due to a lack of funding.
Israel facilitates, in coordination with the PA and the international community, the relevant procedures in order to enable large projects to move forward. For example, a temporary access road was approved in order to enable the construction of the new city of Rawabi, near Ramallah. Some of these projects are stalled due to factors beyond Israel's control.
