This office is made to capacitate municipal council members and staff with knowledge and skills needed to respond to community needs. LOST through opening the LDO aims to enhance public services to the constituents of the Baalbek-Hermel region. Thanks to the Swiss Embassy in Lebanon, LOST has the resources to promote good governance between local authority, mainly municipalities, and the residents.
Representatives from the LDO will reach out to other organizations, both local and international, to encourage transparent communication in order to bring positive results to this impoverished region.
LOST is enriching this region via systematic webbing of all components of society including the municipalities' responsibility towards their citizens, as well as organizations' humanitarian responsibility towards rightful utilization of resources at the micro-level.
