The Gaza Reconstruction Mechanism (GRM) is a temporary agreement created by the United Nations and agreed between the Palestinian Authority and Israel in September 2014. The mechanism is designed to address Israel’s security concerns while allowing the entry of construction materials (aggregate, cement & steel bars only) into the Gaza Strip. Such materials are necessary to enable the type of large scale construction and reconstruction work that is necessary in Gaza after the 2014 Israeli war. Israel defines these necessary types of construction materials, as well as many other goods, as ‘dual use’ and thus severely restricts their entry into Gaza.
