Bureau Leeters and ProVerde Trade Strategies have evaluated the 2008-2012 GlobalGAP and cash crops projects in the Palestinian horticultural sector (Gaza and West Bank) on behalf of the Netherlands Representative Office (NRO) in Ramallah. The evaluation has resulted in the High Value Crops project in the Palestinian Territories (2012-2016), being implemented by FAO. The program did support the horticultural production sector in developing competitiveness within the domestic and export markets.
