Background

The UNDP project aims to support the Lebanese government in the design and implementation of a productive export-oriented sectors’ strategy that should help put back Lebanon on the growth path and support job creations, with a specific focus on vulnerable groups, specifically women and youth.

Development Authority of Lebanon (IDAL) that would serve as the main tool / platform for international
buyers to identify and buy Lebanese products in various productive sectors including Agro Food in the first
