Syrian Arab Republic | Project update: Improving dairy production, preserving livestock assets, preventing malnutrition and increasing resilience of livelihoods
Jun 2021

Ten years of conflict, insecurity and displacements in the Syrian Arab Republic have resulted in a continuing deterioration of the humanitarian situation. In response, the Food and Agriculture Organziation of the United Nations, supported by the International Islamic Charity Organization, is implementing a project to increase livelihood assets and improve households’ skill sets, which will strengthen rural livelihoods and resilience in one of the most severely crisis-affected regions. The project will improve the reproductive performance of 1 000 dairy cows and 1 000 sheep in order to increase the milk production capacity of 1 250 small-scale farmers and sheep herders.
