Who we are

Tasdeer is a 3-year, £15 million development programme funded by UK Aid from the British Government and implemented by a consortium led by Cowater International. Tasdeer supports the improvement of trade performance in the Occupied Palestinian Territory (OPT). The programme aims to contribute to a more dynamic growth led by the private sector and strengthen OPT’s fiscal sustainability. Tasdeer has an integrated focus on gender and social inclusion, supporting inclusive growth and economic opportunities in the OPT.

Tasdeer works with Palestinian institutions and the private sector to expedite the movement of goods across borders and reduce transaction costs, improve the trade-enabling environment, strengthen the private sector’s export competitiveness, and improve OPT’s customs capacity. The programme supports public and private institutions and firms in the OPT.
