Organizational Setting

Lebanon faces numerous challenges related to food security, sustainable agriculture, and natural resources management. In response to these challenges, the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) has developed a strategic framework known as the Country Programming Framework (CPF) for the period 2023-2026. The CPF serves as a roadmap for FAO’s engagement and activities in Lebanon, outlining key programmatic areas and objectives.

The Non-State Actors (NSA) including Civil Society Organizations (CSOs), academia, research institutions, private sector, producer organisations play a vital role in addressing the complex issues outlined in the CPF. CSOs are often at the forefront of grassroots efforts, advocating for sustainable practices and providing essential services to vulnerable communities.

The synergy between NSAs and FAO presents a significant opportunity to enhance the impact of CPF implementation. By collaborating and sharing resources, knowledge, and expertise, NSAs can contribute more effectively to the CPF’s goals.  To harness this potential, it is crucial to gain a comprehensive understanding of the existing relationships and areas of collaboration between NSAs and FAO.

The purpose of those Terms of Reference is to outline the scope of work and responsibilities for a consultant who will be engaged to facilitate partnerships with Non-State Actors (NSAs) in Lebanon. The consultant will play a crucial role in fostering collaborations, strengthening relationships, and enhancing the impact of FAO Lebanon’s initiatives.
