    The Lattakia governorate is a vital area for fruit farming(citrus fruits, apples and olives) in the Syrian ArabRepublic. In the period from October to December 2016, devastating forest fires spread into agricultural areas,damaging 1 377 hectares of farmland. The MAAR initiallyindicated their willingness to support affected farmers through the provision of tree saplings and cash so that farming activities could be resumed during the ensuingseason. However, because of other priorities that required urgent attention in the country, it was later recognized that the MAAR could not provide the necessary support tohelp restore the livelihoods of these fruit farming HHs .Accordingly, FAO received a request for assistance and, in February 2017, conducted a rapid assessment in thedisaster area of Lattakia. It was concluded that the forest fires adversely affected the food security and livelihoods of approximately 4 000 fruit producing HHs, who requiredexternal support in the form of essential agricultural inputs. The FAO assessment advised that the affected farmers urgently required winter vegetable farmingpackages and olive saplings for the upcoming season, as well as training that targeted the development of agricultural methods.
