Union of Agricultural Work Committees
The Union of Agricultural Work Committees (UAWC) is a Palestinian non-governmental agricultural organization. It was established in 1986 and contributes to the Palestinian agricultural sector’s development through empowering farmers steadfastness and sovereignty over their resources within a sustainable community-based framework. UAWC applies a human rights based approach while designing and implementing its projects that range from agricultural land development and implementation of water interventions to capacity building, development of rural women's livelihoods, legal awareness, emergency response and other agricultural development projects. It works alongside Palestinian, regional and international organizations in order to support and protect the rights of the Palestinian farmers.
