ESDU receives $1Million grant from WFP for the CLIMAT project

​The World Food Program (WFP) selected FAFS’ Environment and Sustainable Development Unit (ESDU) to implement a one-year project aimed at sustainably improving the skills, capacities, and livelihood opportunities of vulnerable Lebanese communities and Syrian refugees in Northeast Baalbeck and West Bekaa. CLIMAT (Climate-Smart Livelihoods Initiatives and Market Access Tailoring) is part of WFP’s Lebanon Country Strategic Plan 2018-2020, and its efforts to enhance the livelihoods of Syrian refugees and vulnerable Lebanese host communities through Food for Training (FFT).

The project began October 1 in partnership with Cooperation Without Borders (CWB) and targets 700 beneficiaries. ESDU and CWB will offer material support and create market linkages to develop and strengthen the abilities of women, youth, and farmers in sustainable agricultural practices and climate smart food processing.​​
