News Lebanon: Enhancing Irrigation Management

The ClimaSouth project, together with the Lebanese Agriculture Research Institute (LARI) and L’Istituto Agronomico Mediterraneo di Bari (IAM-Bari), have organised a training workshop, technical site visit in the Bekaa Valley, and follow up assessment discussions, during January 19-23, 2015. The objectives were (i) to empower LARI with knowledge of the tools and practices of IAM-Bari in irrigation, and (ii) to assess existing practices in Bekaa, and search for management practices and systems (irrigation and plant protection) which could improve resilience to climate variability and change, and which can represent a major contribution to adaptation in the agriculture sector. A majore theme was the development and enhancement of Early Warning Systems at both the farm-scale and district-scales.

 More information on adaptation in the agriculture sector in Lebanon can be found at the EU ACLIMAS project.
