Enhancing socio-ecological climate change resilience of marine and coastal systems in Lebanon

IUCN kicks off “Enhancing socio-ecological climate change resilience of marine ‎and coastal systems in Lebanon” project (2018-2021), thanks to the generous ‎contribution from the Norwegian Ministry of Foreign Affairs, through the Royal ‎Norwegian Embassy in Beirut.‎
‎ ‎
This project aims to reduce the vulnerability of selected coastal towns in Lebanon, ‎which are facing crucial sustainability issues, and improve Marine Protected Areas as ‎Ecosystem-based Mitigation and Adaptation. Applying a mix of tools & approaches to ‎enable key conservation functions, sustainable management of ecosystems, adaptation ‎to climate change, and increase capacity to manage natural resources communally are ‎the core issues of biodiversity/marine conservation and policy change. ‎
‎ ‎
Project’s milestones:‎
Milestone 1: Capitalising on effective measures and tools that have previously been ‎tested and proven successful around the Mediterranean
‎ ‎
Milestone 2: Conduct vulnerability assessments and ecosystem mapping to protect and ‎safeguard coastal communities
‎ ‎
Milestone 3: Empower stakeholders on marine management planning and change ‎processes for effective and sustainable management of Marine ecosystems and ‎livelihood security
