What might be one way to improve life in the West Bank? Most people might not immediately think of a new infrastructure corridor, but the RAND Corporation thinks that might be part of the solution. The RAND Corporation has been working with the Palestinian Authority (PA) to encourage economic development in the region, while also advancing the U.S. policy agenda in the Middle East. This 20-page paper offers a few practical suggestions based on five years of consultations between RAND and the PA. Their suggestions include creating a regional transit system for the West Bank, the creation of several new urban districts, and a design of the first national physical plan for Palestine. The bulk of the report consists of artistic renderings of these new environments, along with a general overview of this plan.
