A new Early Warning System (EWS) to optimize irrigation and water management in Lebanese agriculture was presented to potential donors.
The results of a comprehensive needs assessment conducted by the Lebanese Agriculture Research Institute (LARI) with support from the EU funded ClimaSouth project, were presented at a workshop hosted by the European Union Delegation on 6th of February in Beirut, Lebanon.
The overall objective of the proposed upgrade of the agricultural EWS is to improve agrometeorological monitoring throughout the country, in order to support farmers in attenuating damages that could be caused by destructive climatic conditions. Representatives of national and donor Institutions attending the workshop were also briefed on the ongoing training sessions targeting LARI researchers and technicians, conducted with support from the ClimaSouth project.
