The mandate of the Office of the Quartet (OQ) is to increase Palestinian economic and institutional
development and empowerment. In the event of a resumption of final status negotiations, the OQ
would support Quartet members in their efforts to realize a successful outcome.

The OQ works to deliver its mandate in five key sectors: water, energy, movement and trade, rule of
law and telecommunications. In each of these sectors we use our unique position and deep expertise
to support the development of critical enabling projects, agreements, policy changes or institutional
development to deliver greater Palestinian economic development and empowerment. All
workstreams are delivered in line with national priorities and strategies and support progress towards
the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.

The OQ works with a range of stakeholders to deliver its objectives, including the parties, members of
the Quartet, donors, and the international community. The OQ also works through different
coordination mechanisms, for example: by leading Task Force meetings on critical projects; by
providing regular updates and opportunities for discussion with Quartet members and other member
states; through the Netherlands-facilitated Trilateral meetings; and through twice annual meetings of
the Ad-Hoc Liaison Committee (AHLC) as well as the Local Aid Coordination Secretariat (LACS).
