English Abstract

-This study aims to evaluate the current project risk management within UNRWA in Gaza in all areas related to the Agency’s mandate.

Projects implemented by UNRWA in Gaza are subject to risks due to the volatile situation and the adverse situation representing risks and uncertainties that are difficult to predict and that impede the effective and timely implementation of projects according to their plans.

This negatively impacts the outputs of these projects and creates grave repercussions and disruption consuming the project resources and budgets.

This will also have a negative impact on the Agency’s image and funding as the relationship with the donor community will be also distorted.

This study tackled some of the main factors which are related to the management of risks in projects.

These are information management, organizational structure, the methodology used in risk analysis and management, and risk planning.

Results collected from the study population indicated that there are significant correlations between those factors or variables and project risk management.

The results also revealed that there are certain aspects related to planning, organizational structure, information management, and planning in need for enhancement in order to reach effective management of projects risks.

The study also discussed some of the project and risk management approaches, mainly quantitative, that could be integrated or incorporated into UNRWA systems and be relied on to achieve effective risk management.

Some of the key recommendations of the study are: developing the current structure and current positions related to grant and project management so that projects risks are dealt with more professionally and in a systemized manner from dedicated staff.

Another key recommendation also is designating a focal point staff member within each implementing programme or department to act as the main source of information needed in risk management.

The study also revealed that there is gap between the top management who are making the decisions related to projects and the line or operational management of projects which are crucial to effective risk management within the Agency.

The study also emphasized and recommended that there should be more utilization of quantitative approaches in risk analysis and management.

These approaches maybe b adapted and incorporated within different UNRWA systems.
