UfM pledges support for Gaza’s early recovery at international conference in Jordan

Jordan Daily – The Union for the Mediterranean (UfM) Secretary General, Nasser Kamel, participated in the “Call for Action: Urgent Humanitarian Response for Gaza” conference today in Jordan, pledging the organisation’s readiness to assist in Gaza’s early recovery efforts.

The conference, organised by Jordan, Egypt, and the United Nations, aimed to identify Gaza’s humanitarian needs, obstacles to aid delivery, and early recovery priorities. Kamel was among the international representatives present, according to a statement released by UfM.

Following remarks by Deputy Prime Minister Ayman Safadi, Egypt’s Foreign Minister Sameh Shoukry, and UN Under-Secretary General for Humanitarian Affairs Martin Griffiths, Kamel discussed Palestine’s early recovery priorities. Kamel emphasised the UfM’s willingness to assist, drawing on its experience in mobilising actors and building effective regional coalitions.

The UfM, which convened a meeting last November to discuss the situation in Gaza, is working on an education initiative to enable Palestinian students to complete their studies online. The initiative has already attracted over 47,000 students. The UfM is also exploring projects in employment, the water-food-energy nexus, urban development, and other strategic areas for Gaza’s recovery.

The conference concluded with addresses by King Abdullah II , President Abdel Fatah el-Sisi , and UN Secretary General António Guterres. Kamel reiterated the UfM’s commitment to peace through a two-state solution and its readiness to provide a platform for efficient action in Gaza.
