The World Bank wants to help provide 55,000 new part-time job opportunities over the next five years for Palestinians in the West Bank and Gaza through an emerging online phenomenon called microwork.

The sophisticated web-based assembly lines allow people anywhere in the world to work from home for global companies by completing micro tasks on the Internet.

The World Bank plans to hold a microwork pilot study in the Palestinian territories, but no exact date has been set.
