Women's Affairs Technical Committee was established in 1992. WATC is a coalition of seven women's organizations, three women's centers and individual women activists. WATC seeks to eliminate all forms of discrimination against women, to develop the role of women in society, and to empower women to assume decision-making positions. The coalition pays special attention to marginalized and less privileged women, particularly women in rural areas and refugees, as well as focusing on women leaders and young potential leaders in order to facilitate their role in the process of national struggle and social change. The Women's Affairs Technical Committee was founded in Jerusalem in 1992 as one of the technical teams formed to support the peace negotiations. In addition, it was intended to be part of the organization and infrastructure building of a future Palestinian state, to integrate gender into all preparatory work in support of the peace process, and to build state institutions in a manner that would fulfill the Declaration of Independence (1988) which affirms the principle of equality among Palestinians regardless of sex, religion or race.

Landesa works to secure land rights for the world's poorest people. In brief "We recognize that a majority of the world's poorest 2.5 billion share two traits:

They live in rural areas, where land is a key asset since agriculture is the main source of income and food
They don't own the land they till

Landlessness is one of the best predictors of extreme poverty.

We believe structural problems deserve structural solutions. Without secure land rights, many important global development investments – education initiatives, micro-finance, global health work – lack sustainability and are more difficult to scale.

Landesa partners with developing countries to design and implement pro-poor land laws, policies, and programs that:

Reduce poverty for individual families
Promote economic growth for communities and countries
Improve nutrition and health
Encourage women's empowerment
Reduce and prevent violent conflict
Foster environmental stewardship."
