The present EMMA study focused on these as target population, covering the five governorates of the Gaza Strip. The key analytical questions focused on the constraints of the target group to start and sustain broiler production, the capacity of the market to absorb an increase in the supply of broiler chickens and the most appropriate interventions to effectively support sustainable broiler production by small-scale producers. The study used a livelihoods perspective and looked at the broiler chicken market as an income market. It also looked at the impacts of the previous two wars (Cast Lead in December 2008-January 2009 and November 2012) to analyse what the impacts of a future similar crisis could be. In this sense, this study was really more of an early PCMMA than an EMMA.
