Agriculture and Livelihoods Stabilization Partnerships
In communities in Northeast Syria, years of conflict has threatened agricultural production and the livelihoods of those who depend on it.
The Northeast Syria Agriculture and Livelihoods Stabilization Partnerships program works with community-based organizations in target communities in Northeast Syria to rebuild livelihoods and agricultural activities that stimulate economic recovery while also building the capacity of civil society. With improved livelihoods opportunities in the region, displaced persons will have a smoother transition upon return to their communities.
The program provides technical assistance and small grants to partner organizations to improve the productivity of farmers and artisans, specifically focusing on at-risk households. By supporting increased market coordination and working with small livestock producers and food processors, the project will work to strengthen social cohesion and food security. On a broader level, the program seeks to address community challenges related to agriculture and livelihoods by promoting dialogue and community mobilization around these issues.
The Northeast Syria Agriculture and Livelihoods Stabilization Partnerships program is the first Creative program funded by the German Federal Foreign Office.
