About

Programme/Project Description:

Empowering war-affected communities through the integration of humanitarian and development assistance and the rehabilitation/revitalization of the productive capacities of the country. The focus is on livelihoods recovery and the rehabilitation of selected agro-processing enterprises.

 

Development Goal and Key Immediate Objectives:

Support economic recovery and restore livelihoods in war-affected areas of Lebanon thereby generating employment and alleviating poverty in the country. In line with this objective, the project will provide technical assistance and inputs for the rehabilitation of damaged agro-processing facilities, especially small- and medium enterprises both in rural and urban areas. A minimum of 25 to 35 agro-enterprises will be rehabilitated, directly generating an estimated 300 to 500 jobs.

 

Outputs and Key Activities:

The 18-month project is Phase II of the project: Support for Livelihoods and Economic Recovery in War-affected Areas of Lebanon (June 2007 June 2009). In line with the aim of the first phase, Phase II will assist the Government of Lebanon in the process of rehabilitating selected agro-industrial enterprises (including food, beverage, textile, furniture making, etc.) enabling them to resume production and integrate into the global market. During Phase II it is expected that a minimum of 25 to 35 agro-enterprises will be rehabilitated, directly generating 300 to 500 jobs. Apart from the benefits of an increase in direct employment, the rehabilitation of the targeted agro-enterprises will have a multiplier effect in creating more jobs in food and non-food production as well as improving the quality of life of the rural population, increasing food supply, and contributing to poverty reduction.

 

In parallel to the above-outcomes, it is expected that the project will develop the required human resources for proper operation of the agro-processing equipment introduced; including training workers and technicians in new technologies/processes, and making and assembling new products.
