About this event

How might we support Lebanon's agriculture sector during these difficult times?
Join us as we discuss this topic with experts in the field.

Supporting Lebanon’s agricultural sector, a country with the highest proportion of cultivable land, per capita, in the Arab world should be one of the our priorities.

With the currency collapse and the pandemic, getting equipment and distributing cultivated goods became more tricky. It has driven many to turn to their fields and plant on their own produce since market prices have skyrocketed.

Over a month ago, Nadine Labaki started a national campaign called « Zarri3et Albi » gathering most of the sustainable agriculture initiatives and aiming to help citizens who are willing to grow seeds and vegetables in their homes or their lands. You can watch the video here. We called the event « Zarri3et Albna» in order to tie it to the same cause.
