The present publication has been produced in the framework of the project New Technologies (ICT) for an integrated and sustainable management of natural resources in Lebanon (referred to as “ICT project”) funded by the Italian Development Cooperation (Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation). The project was implemented under the supervision of the Insubria Center on International Security – ICIS and involved different Italian and international stakeholders. ICIS is a highly specialized Center established in 2007 at the University of Insubria (Italy), focused on international security issues and international cooperation projects and funded by national (Italian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation) and multilateral (EC) stakeholders. Other institutes directly involved in the implementation of the project include the Centro Interuniversitario per la Cooperazione allo Sviluppo Agro-alimentare e Ambientale (CICSAA) based at the University of Milan, the Global Water Partnership-Med (GWP-Med) and the Lebanese Ministry of Energy and Water (MEW). The project’s main objective was to strengthen and develop the adaptation skills of selected stakeholders, such as policy makers, in order to cope with future scenarios linked to the main driving forces that will be operating in the region in the near future, such as demographic growth, pollution and climate change.
