Poultry farmer field school in Lebanon

Semi intensive egg production to support the resilience of livelihoods in protracted crisis
21/09/2016

The large influx of Syrian refugees into Lebanon (an estimated 1.5 million) constitutes a major challenge across all sectors. The impact on the agriculture sector is particularly worrying, as this is the main source of income and livelihoods for a large proportion of the population – notably for the poorest and most vulnerable hosting communities in rural areas. The poultry subsector represents a major economic activity, employing at least 30 000 people. Through the Farmer Field School approach, the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations, with the financial support of the United Kingdom, developed semi-intensive egg production for communities hosting Syrian refugees.
