Shurook has selected its initial areas of intervention based on the most essential infrastructure needs of an independent, fully flourishing economy. Through in-depth consultations with Palestinian public and private sector leaders, as well as international policy experts, our team is focused on projects that address the largest initial barriers to economic progress.
Potential to increase the economic independence of Palestine
Functioning as a self-sustaining and growing economy is a critical step in Palestine’s road to stability and independence. Although Shurook understands that regional peace will come from a political process, not an economic one, an independent and flourishing Palestine needs core infrastructure that is currently lacking and a stronger economy that can create jobs.
Requested as a top priority by Palestinian private/public sector stakeholders
Shurook values the expertise and judgment of local partners, who need to champion a project to ensure it is sustainable. We select projects that have been singled out for importance and potential success by the people who most intimately understand the unique operating context.
Presents a credible revenue model for potential investors
Our financial analysts are clear-eyed about the fact that projects in a developing context do not always immediately present credible revenue models; however, we remain firm in our belief that every project we support must have at least one portion that is commercially viable in order to be sustainable.
In our current roll-out phase, our development team is focusing efforts on a USD $2+ billion project pipeline targeting infrastructure efforts in Renewable Energy, Water, and Affordable Housing.
To complement our large-scale, foundational projects, the Shurook Lab is also piloting new and potentially groundbreaking technologies and methods.
