DAY 2 AGENDA


Sessions List

Outcome

 

This session seeks to involve attendees and experts in highlighting the most pertinent points from the previous day’s sessions. The aim of recalling these aspects is as follows:

  • Promote engagement on the potential for a resilience-based framework in the oPt;
  • Begin the process of charting a way forward that both includes and goes beyond the resilience fund.

At the end of the session, attendees will:

 

  • Have an understanding of the concept of resilience, and its applicability to the Palestinian context;
  • Have begun to think of using the concept as a path forward for Palestine.

Format

 

This session will be an open forum discussion, with two sections. The first section will involve the posing of questions by the moderator. These questions will be open for all audience members to answer. They could include:

 

  • Is resilience applicable to the Palestinian context?
  • Are there linkages between resilience and sumud? If so, is sumud a plausible framework for the future?
  • What potential for Palestine do you see in the resilience framework?
  • What are the steps towards building resilience in the Palestinian context?
  • What can the PA do to assist in building resilience? What can other stakeholders (UN, INGOs, NGOs etc.) do to assist in building resilience?

 

The second section will be more open, and will involve questions and comments from attendees. This can either be broken into specific topics or relate to specific sessions, or be completely open. It depends on the level of control that the moderator wants to have on the direction of the session.

 

The aim of having such a format will be to weave together the different narratives and discussions that took place on the previous day. It will open up the space for a genuine discussion about the relevance and usefulness of resilience in the Palestinian context, and how to use it in the future. 

This session seeks to discuss the newly established Palestine Resilience Fund (PRF), highlighting its objectives and approach, grounded in the conference’s conceptualization of resilience-based programming. It will link practical steps discussed in the previous session with an actual mechanism to fund these. The session will thus:

 

  • Discuss objectives, approach, requirements, priorities, funding mechanism, and governance of the PRF
  • Begin conceptualising new ideas for interventions that fit the resilience programming paradigm
  • Bring together potential donors and implementers to develop a unified understanding and vision of resilience-based interventions

Outcomes

At the end of the session, attendees will:

 

  • Have an understanding of the purpose, objectives, approach, and requirements of the PRF
  • Begin to brainstorm and conceptualise interventions that can be implemented through the new Fund
  • Have begun to think of practical methods for using resilience-based programming as a path forward for Palestine

Format

This session will be quite open, and will involve a presentation on the Fund, followed by questions and comments from attendees. This will open up the space for genuine discussion about the relevance and usefulness of resilience in the Palestinian context, and how to use it in the future. It will also provide an opening for relevant stakeholders and actors to come together to discuss cooperation, knowledge-sharing, new ideas and approaches, and coming together to effectuate resilience-based programming in Palestine.
