Lebanon: Neither wanting nor wasting

Lebanon: Neither wanting nor wasting | MED-Amin network | Scoop.it

The new social enterprises in Lebanon’s entrepreneurial landscape have not been able to take part in the post-COVID-19 global recovery and accelerated reopening; already severely crippled by limited access to financing and the loss of a sizeable portion of their imports, they also have to contend with the surge in prices of commodities worldwide, making it ever more difficult for them to maintain productivity, much less profitability and job creation.

Revolutionising Lebanon’s agriculture sector as food runs out 

Revolutionising Lebanon’s agriculture sector as food runs out  | MED-Amin network | Scoop.it

As time runs out for government subsidies in Lebanon, the troubled country faces an uphill battle to keep its population fed as food prices continue to rise, driven up by an ever-deepening liquidity crisis and a severe dependency on imported foreign goods.

Despite having the highest proportion of arable land in the Arab world with more than 200,000 hectares (494,000 acres), Lebanon’s own agricultural sector has gone underfunded and underdeveloped for many years, hindered by a lack of modern equipment and inefficient production techniques.

Climate change is the region’s ultimate enemy

Climate change is the region’s ultimate enemy | MED-Amin network | Scoop.it

The release of these initial findings coincided with wildfires, mainly caused by record high temperatures, raging through vast wooded regions of Turkey, Greece, Cyprus and Lebanon in recent weeks.

On the anniversary of the deadly port explosion, Ammoula embraces local products and cuisine as the way to survive.

Soaring food prices have become an issue in many parts of the world. Lebanon, which relies heavily on imports, is one of the region’s most vulnerable countries. Food prices shot up 400% in December, according to government data, and more than half of the nation’s population has plunged into poverty since the economic crisis commenced in August 2019 and was compounded by the Covid-19 pandemic and the port explosion.
