Research cooperation with FAO

​​​FAFS and the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) embarked on a joint research venture to conduct a pilot study on evapotranspiration and trade-offs in the Water-Energy-Food Nexus in the Beqaa Valley, Lebanon.

The study will address the issue of water scarcity in Lebanon and the region by exploring options for sustainable water management. A water-energy-food trade-offs framework will be developed to validate the FAO Water Productivity Open-access portal (WaPOR) tool with field evapotranspiration measurements from the Beqaa. For this purpose, the project will conduct surveys, collect data, and analyze water management options for nutrition, water reuse, alternative energy in irrigation, and agricultural production. The one-year project kicked off in July 2019.
