SPNL initiated in the beginning of 2013 a project for empowering women funded by the UN WomenFund for Gender Equality– “Promoting Hima Women Empowerment for Conservation and Livelihood”. The three year project aims at enhancing the livelihood of rural women through the revival of the Hima approach in the sustainable management of three IBAs of Lebanon, Aanjar, KfarZabad, and the Upper Mountains of Akkar- Donnieh.
