    The assessment aimed to provide humanitarian and development actors, as well as the Ministry of Agriculture, with baseline information in order to establish a comprehensive strategy for food security and livelihoods interventions targeting host communities. The FSLA was informed by a secondary data review that showed a clear lack of information on Lebanese host communities. This review was conducted as part of the first phase of the interagency Multi Sector Needs Assessment (May 2014). The asses sment consisted of several phases. A series of data collection and analysis exercises were undertaken between September and December 2014. First, as mentioned above, a desk review was commissioned to collate and synthetize the most up-to-date secondary data available on the agriculture, food security and livelihoods situations of Lebanese host communities. Second, primary data collection was undertaken. It combined focus group discussions with targeted qualitative key informant interviews and a household survey. This report presents the findings from the assessment. 1

    FAO, in collaboration with the Ministry of Agriculture in Jordan, and in partnership with IFAD and WFP, launched the project entitled “Enhancing resilient livelihoods and food security of host communities and Syrian refugees in Jordan and Lebanon through the promotion of sustainable agricultural development”. This project is funded by the European Union, through the EU Regional Trust Fund in Response to the Syrian crisis, the EU Madad Fund. The project addresses the reduced livelihood and food security levels in Jordan resulting from the crisis in Syria. It offers to tackle its negative impact on both refugees from Syria and host communities through support to the agriculture sector. This will be done by improving the agricultural productivity and farmers’ incomes, in addition to creating job opportunities for both host communities and displaced Syrians. The project will also promote social protection mechanisms for the benefit of the host farming community. The project also aims at creating adequate agriculture production support systems for vulnerable smallholders that support good agriculture practices and timely response to shocks and rehabilitate the capacity of the agriculture extension systems to be able to respond to the increasing demand for support due to the impact of the Syrian crisis. In addition, the project will support vulnerable smallholders and small family-based agri-food enterprises to increase the productivity and financial feasibility. The brochure will ensure the visibility of FAO and the partners, including the donor. It will provide information on the project and output 1.
