Lebanon Zero Poverty
October 2019
January 2022

This twenty-seven month project (November 2019 – January 2022) aims to contribute to the economic empowerment of Lebanese and Syrian women in Lebanon, through improving women’s access to secure and sustainable incomes and livelihoods, and enhancing capacity of stakeholders at institutional and community level to recognize women’s specific economic needs, and to enact/support policy change to address them. The project will be implemented in the South governorate of Lebanon and will provide a total of 750 women (half of whom refugees) with access to technical and soft skills training across 6 value chains in agricultural and non-agricultural sectors. Concurrently, business development support will be provided to a total of 10 women-led SMEs and 3 start-ups, including development of market linkages. 5 target municipalities will additionally benefit from capacity building for the implementation of local economic initiatives supporting women’s economic empowerment. Finally, women’s rights and economic participation will be promoted through awareness-raising and community mobilization, targeting approximately 25,000 individuals.
