The 2005 mandate to the LPDC was very broad. In the interest of effective implementation of the strategy, the project will develop proposals for gradual organizational up-scaling including suggestions for: mandate review, structural adjustment, sustainable resourcing and substantial Governmental financing aiming at enhancing the structure and mandate of LPDC in a gradual manner.

In this regard, LPDC is developing an institutional Plan for the LPDC Office, by proposing amendments to the Mandate and Mission of the LPDC for the approval of the Prime Minister and/or Cabinet.

In addition, LPDC is seeking to further develop the proposal of the Higher Commission for Palestinian refugees, by organizing series of consultative workshops with ministries’ representatives, civil society organizations and other stakeholders to review the draft law.
