SPNL recently participated in a regional reflection workshop, held in Morocco, regarding the “Social, Ecological and Agricultural Resilience in the face of climate change in the Mediterranean Region (SEARCH) Project”. The project which is funded by the European Union, and coordinated by the IUCN, included participants from Lebanon (SPNL and Mada), Jordan, Palestine, Egypt, and Morocco, in addition to a regional support group from Switzerland. Results on the vulnerability assessments in each country were presented, along with the overall achievements met so far, and their evaluation. The workshop set the ground for future plans which will ultimately aim at producing a resilience framework by the month of June 2013, and a pilot project in each country. The pilot project in Lebanon will be held in the villages of Aaydamoun and Karm Chbat in Hima Upper Akkar. Moreover, a methodology was set for producing a toolkit to be used in any future project related to the resilience against climate change.
