Titre : Integrated forest fires management – forest fires prevention forest fires fighting (control) and damaged forests assessment and rehabilitation (Lebanon)

Pays : Liban

Identification du projet : OSRO/LEB/703/UNJ

Date : 2008

Présentation
* Background :  : During the 15 months (2006- 2007), forested areas in Lebanon suffered from a major decline. More than 3000 ha (2.2% of total forests) were either burned or blocked for access by local people. Main causes for this loss were the multiple adverse impacts of the war of July 2006 compounded by the disastrous fires of October 2007
* Objectives : The project will comprise three main ways of intervention one aiming at fire preventive measures, the second concentrating on fire fighting (control) and the third focusing on damaged forests assessment and rehabilitation
* Outputs : Supporting early recovery and alleviating poverty through improved forest fires management (prevention, control, assessment & rehabilitation) and their associated benefits to environment and rural communities
* Prevention : Establishment of a modern and efficient early warning system particularly in high risk ; Research/development, implementation and monitoring of .an integrated forest management programme
* Control : Maintenance and supply of software and hardware tools for fire fighting
* Assessment & Rehabilitation : Assessment of ecological/socio-economic losses ; Identification implementation of best restoration techniques per affected area as well as implementation ; Upgrading and follow up of the National Reforestation Programme, as one of the restoration techniques
* Cross-Cutting : Promotion of research and development related to forest fires prevention and fighting ; Organization of a targeted public awareness campaign, Organization of a training programme for local municipalities communities and stakeholders ; Human resources mobilization at both the public and the private sectors and encouragement of civil society initiatives
