Alhamdulillah for giving us the strength and spirit of competency to complete this Study. The team would like to express its gratitude to all the participants and collaborators who contributed in the success of the Study. The first thanks may go to the Palestinian Minister of Agriculture, Dr. Ismail Daiq, and the staff of the Ministry for their support and full cooperation. Special thanks go to our Italian friends, the Government and people, who supported the Study through the Italian Cooperation stemming from their belief that Palestinian people should live in dignity and freedom. We would like to express our appreciation and deep gratitude to our colleagues in the United Nation Development Program (UNDP) who have been proved to be committed to the sustainable development of Palestinians by administering a unique land reclamation program for more than ten years and they vowed themselves to benefit from the Study results. Many thanks to all the people working in the agricultural development field who enriched the study with their suggestions and recommendations. Last but not least, there is no doubt that big achievements require huge efforts. Outstanding efforts which rendered the study attainable were held by people working in the agricultural field; these people augmented the Study with their knowledge and efforts
