Due to the high influx of large number of Syrian displaced that is currently hosted within Lebanese communities, significant pressure on water, sanitation, waste management, education, and healthcare systems have been observed. In addition, there is an increasing competition for income generating opportunities. Both of the above are the primary source of community tensions. Local authorities are faced with situations where the needs have grown exponentially. The current structures are not equipped and do not have the capacity to provide those services. Based on the recently approved Lebanon crisis response plan for 2017-2020, UNDP in partnership with the Ministry of Energy and Water (MoEW) have mobilized funding to upgrade irrigation infrastructure in areas where significant needs have been identified. This would reduce high water losses from already overexploited ground water reserves and provide resources for expanding agriculture yield as means to increase livelihood for both Lebanese residents and displaced Syrians. The project targets four regions across Lebanon with solid and diversified networks and partnerships within the four targeted regions (South Lebanon, North Lebanon, Mount Lebanon, and Bekaa). These regions will be served by the project through the construction/rehabilitation of irrigation networks and/or irrigation ponds. The construction of irrigation ponds will require and Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) studies.

Duties and Responsibilities

Creating, producing, shooting and editing a 2:00-2:30 minutes video documentary in the Bekaa, the North and the South regions of Lebanon in addition to a 59 seconds short version for social media use.
