WeWorld (WW), constituted from the merger of two NGOs in 2018, is an Italian secular and independent organization working since 1971 in international cooperation and humanitarian aid. Present in over 20 countries, it operates in the following areas of assistance: human rights, humanitarian aid, food security and livelihoods, access to water, health and hygiene, education and global citizenship education.

WW has been working in Lebanon since 2006, with interventions aimed at increasing the populations’ resilience, enhancing the communities’ capacity to find, within its fabric, the skills and resources necessary to grow self-sufficiently. WW is supporting vulnerable populations in Baalbek-Hermel and Akkar through: (1) Livelihoods and Local Economic Development Program aimed at improving the effectiveness and efficiency of agricultural production along specific value chains, to increase regional competitiveness in domestic and international markets and generating income and job opportunities in the agri-food sector and sectors serving it. The Local Economic Development program also strengthens the capacity of public institutions to enhance livelihood opportunities, socio-economic conditions, and social cohesion through participatory planning. (2) The Water Governance Program aimed at effective and sustainable use of water resources (potable water and irrigation interventions) and water governance via a three-tiered approach: infrastructural upgrade, capacity building to the local institutions/authorities and community engagement targeting users and local authorities. (3) Multi-Sectoral Emergency Response Program, since 2011, which provides multi-sectoral assistance (WASH, Livelihoods, Shelter, Food Security, Social Stability, Education ) to refugees in informal settlements and to host communities, along with support to local institutions to strengthen public services delivery and mitigate tensions. A HDP Nexus approach is applied throughout programming to ensure consistency and effectiveness, bridging gaps between humanitarian and development.
