This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.
This multiple award-winning volume examines options for strengthening the housing and transportation infrastructure of a potential future independent Palestinian state in the context of a large and rapidly growing Palestinian population. This book builds on analyses that RAND conducted between 2002 and 2004 to identify the requirements for a successful Palestinian state. That work, Building a Successful Palestinian State, surveyed a broad array of political, economic, social, resource, and environmental challenges that a new Palestinian state would face. The Arc presents a detailed vision for a modern, high-speed transportation infrastructure, and includes initial cost estimates for improving and expanding infrastructure to facilitate successful development. This enhanced e-book version includes a video overview as well as additional material about initiatives for improving mobility, quality of life, and economic growth in the West Bank.
