Balancing water stress, human crises and innovation under a changing dryland climate
During 2016, IIED explored the intersection of international environmental and crisis agendas in the context of Lebanon’s Bekaa Valley, with the help of international, national and local practitioners. Findings confirm that strategic planning to avoid water stress is more difficult during crises. Nevertheless, new opportunities are also created. This briefing summarises recommendations by IIED and Lebanese partners following a series of in-depth analyses, discussion and reflections.
