Emergency Vaccination against Transboundary Animal Disease in Lebanon

The large influx of Syrian refugees into Lebanon, an estimated 1.5 million, constitutes a major challenge for the country. Many refugees arrive in the neighbouring countries with a large number of unvaccinated livestock, thereby increasing the risk of transboundary animal diseases (TADs). 

The impact of the Syrian crisis 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 agricultural sector in Lebanon and particularly the milk and dairy segment represents one of the major sources of income for rural poor farming communities in Lebanon. FAO, in collaboration with the Government of Lebanon’s Ministry of Agriculture (MoA) and thanks to funding from the Lebanese Recovery Fund (LRF), executed two projects, over a period of four years, to kick-start sustainable milk production and improvement of the food safety standards of the dairy industry in Lebanon.
