ESDU receives a Grant under WFP program to Enhance the Livelihood of vulnerable communities

​​Within WFP’s Program, Enhancing the Livelihoods of Vulnerable Lebanese Host Communities and Syrian Refugees through Food Assistance for Training (FFT) Activities, ESDU was granted a 1,667,967USD to implement Window 1 Short Term FFT activities focusing on supporting vulnerable individuals and Window 2 Long-Term Capacity Building Support activities focusing on cooperatives and SMEs. 

This project extends over a 10 months period (June 2020 – March 2021) and will be implemented in Bekaa, Northeast Baalbek and the North by ESDU in partnership with LLWB and COSPE. In light of the current socio-economic crisis, this project aims at promoting the local food system by addressing the main gaps in the targeted value chains (dairy and fruits and vegetables) through promoting small-scale farmers/producer, enhancing product quality, integrating innovation in authentic food production, promoting sustainable agricultural practices, and facilitating market linkages.
