Organization Type





The Palestinian International Cooperation Agency (PICA) is the main public diplomacy tool of the State of Palestine and works as a national coordinator for South-South and North-South Cooperation.

PICA transfers Palestinian know-how to countries of the South, in the form of development and technical assistance. Its creation is guided by a sense of responsibility towards the international community and is an expression of gratitude and appreciation for the support given to the State of Palestine over the years.

Guided by a vision of solidarity through development, the State of Palestine seeks to mobilize its skilled human resources to provide technical assistance to support partner countries in responding to crisis and tackling development challenges with the aim of promoting South-South Cooperation and realizing the 2030 Agenda and its 17 Sustainable Development Goals. In order to work towards this vision, the PICA was created as the development cooperation arm of Palestinian foreign policy with specific attention given to support developing countries across and beyond the Arab region.

PICA envisions that sustainable development becomes a reality through cooperation and solidarity within a just and prosperous international community.
