The roundtable will bring together selected experts to discuss the findings of our latest research project. The study "Rebuilding Gaza’s Electricity Infrastructure – a Fast Track Approach" analyzes existing strategies and projects aimed at upgrading and expanding the electricity infrastructure in Gaza, with a critical look at the timeline of various project components and the enabling measures and activities which would assist in their advancement. In cases where the time line for the completion of these projects stretches for several years, or where the enabling measures may not be realistic, the study propose a new strategy based on solar energy and practical solutions to raise electricity output within one year, which can put the re-building of Gaza's electricity infrastructure on a faster and cost-effective track.
The research is jointly being carried out by Dr. Karim Nashashibi, former IMF Country Director to the West Bank and the Gaza Strip and advisor to Prime Minister Fayyad, and Yitzhak Gal, co-chair of the Dayan Centre Middle East Economic Forum at the Tel Aviv University.
