ISNAD: Innovation System Networks for Agricultural Development Based on Gender Inclusion and Eco-Entrepreneurship

Implemented in the North, Akkar, West Bekaa and Baalbek areas of Lebanon

In light of the current socio-economic crisis Lebanon is struggling with, the ISNAD project was launched to promote the local food system by addressing main gaps in the targeted value chains (dairy, fruits, vegetables, legumes and cereals) through promoting and building the capacities of small-scale farmers and producers, enhancing product quality, integrating innovation in authentic food production, promoting sustainable agricultural practices, enhancing business development skills and facilitating market linkages, while targeting gender inclusion and awareness.

This project is implemented in partnership between ESDU, the Lebanese League for Women in Business (LLWB) and COSPE Onlus and is funded by the Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) in Germany under the World Food Programme’s (WFP) “Enhancing the Livelihoods of Vulnerable Lebanese Host Communities and Syrian Refugees Through Food Assistance for Training (FFT) Activities” program.
