Implemented in Northern Lebanon
This project is implemented by Concern Worldwide, in partnership between ESDU and the Lebanese Agricultural Research Institute (LARI). Funded by the Bureau of Population, Refugees, and Migration (PRM), this project will be implemented over a two-year period. In the first phase, ESDU will be responsible for providing ToT (training of trainers) workshops for the facilitators selected by Concern Worldwide that will be delivering capacity building on the following topics: sustainable production of cattle and small ruminants, hydroponic feed production and business development. Furthermore, ESDU is responsible of conducting a market assessment for the previously mentioned value chains.
This project will target 1,310 individuals (61% Syrian refugees and 39% Lebanese) in the Akkar and Danniyeh districts of Northern Lebanon, to provide support for two value chains: herbs (za’atar and coriander) and dairy. Protection mainstreaming (the process of incorporating protection principles) will be offered to all the participants. In a later stage of the project, ESDU will be leading market exploration and development.
