FAO is implementing the three-year Canada funded project “Support to women cooperatives and associations in the agro-food sector of Lebanon – GCP/LEB/030/CAN” in collaboration with the Ministry of Agriculture.
The project aims at supporting through cash transfer and employment vouchers 150 Lebanese women cooperatives/associations to develop and implement a business plan in the agro-food sector. The project environment will be prepared by a feminist awareness campaign delivered in all the Lebanese regions. In parallel, a study will be conducted to assess the agricultural sector from a gender perspective. The study will identify challenges and constraints of women in the agro-food sector and identify opportunities and potentialities.
Women cooperatives/associations will be provided with an extensive training package relevant to the cooperatives and the business. They will be coached by a group of trained facilitators to prepare feasible and profitable business plans. A number of the business plans will be selected for cash grant and labor voucher support.
During the project, the Directorate General of Cooperatives will be assisted and upgraded according to a Quality management system roadmap and the status of the National Observatory of Women in Agricultural and rural Areas (NOWARA) will be improved.
In order to highlight the project activities and results, the project will be recruiting a videographer to produce several short movies in the context of a communication and visibility plan.
The videographer is expected to produce 3 short movies for social media (one with English text one screen, another one with Arabic text) in addition to rushes covering activities of projects.
