Reducing the Direct Economic Downturn Impact on Vulnerable Communities in Lebanon

​Implemented in the Bekaa and Southern Lebanon regions

This project aims to enhance the livelihoods of 28 entities (including MSMEs, smallholder farmers and cooperatives) and 590 direct beneficiaries (as either MSME/cooperative members, farmers or laborers) to expand production, generate an income and continue to produce food for their respective communities. Within the scope of the project, beneficiaries are empowered to develop their subsistence through a number of assets including: technical guidance and support, paid activities and access to the market which expands their networks and allows them access to new economic opportunities. 

 “Reducing the Direct Economic Downturn Impact on Vulnerable Communities in Lebanon” is a United Nations Development Programme (UNDP Lebanon) project implemented in partnership between ESDU and the Agency for Technical Cooperation and Development (ACTED Lebanon). It is financially supported by the German Embassy in Beirut through funds from KfW in Germany.
