​​The Climate Change and Environment Program at AUB’s Issam Fares Institute held today a consultation meeting in Batroun, part of the “Understanding the vulnerability of Coastal Cities in Lebanon to climate change: the case of Batroun and Tyre” project.

This project which is implemented in partnership with Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung (FES) and the municipality of Batroun aims to contribute to a better understanding of the vulnerability of smaller coastal cities in Lebanon to climate change risks through the case studies of Batroun and Tyre in order to inform resilient city planning.

Different stakeholders, among them representatives of governmental institutions such as the ministry of Environment and ministry of Agriculture, municipality, private sector, fishermen associations, and others participated in the first consultation meeting held in Batroun. The meeting aimed to guide the undertaken vulnerability assessment to climate change impacts through prioritizing the sectors of interest within each city in a participatory approach. The second consultation meeting will be held on Wednesday April 24​​​, in Tyr.
