Palestinian Bedouins have inhabited the Jordan Valley in large numbers for the past century. A traditional agricultural community that relies mainly on stockbreeding and seasonal farming, they face movement and building restrictions, as well as severe restrictions on their use of water.

Since it occupied the valley in 1967, Israel has put in place a range of measures, including stringent restrictions on construction and movement. The measures hamper development, adversely affect livelihoods and generally make life very difficult for Palestinians living close to the 30 Israeli settlements in the valley.
