Supporting Agriculture

As part of “Get Connected” project, the Lebanese Organization of Studies & Training, the CSO participants in Get Connected in addition to many other local NGOs organized a visit to Jaboula municipality where they met the vice-president Mr. Samir El Ghadban and discussed the various ways of activating and supporting the agricultural sector.

Mr. Samir El Ghadban affirmed that the municipality works on establishing irrigation networks and supporting the agricultural sector through holding training courses to farmers by donors’ assistance.
He noted that the lack of financial resources is the main problem that impedes the development of agricultural sector.

It is worth noting that this visit is one of several activities that will be conducted by LOST in Baalbeck- Hermel region in an attempt to support and develop this productive sector and to extend the role of this sector in revitalizing Baalbeck- Hermel region.
