1. Project Background

The Lebanon Community Support Program (CSP) is a multi-year project funded by USAID to support municipalities and underserved and vulnerable communities in providing better services and enhanced economic opportunities to improve lives and reduce tensions that contribute to conflict and violence, primarily in Lebanon’s North, South, and Beqaa regions. Under Task Order No. 3 (TO 3), the project provides technical assistance to municipalities, civil society organizations (CSOs), the private sector, or other entities to increase capacity and ensure sustainable impact in providing key essential services. The main objective of this 5-year task order is to support Component 3 (Capacity Building) of the CSP Program by delivering technical assistance to enhance the sustainability of CSP interventions under Component 1 (Community Stabilization Support) and Component 2 (Community Development Support), and if required, under future Task Orders.

Over the past three years, the USAID-funded Community Support Program (CSP) in Lebanon has supported six cooperatives, with ongoing efforts directed towards improving the livelihoods of their members and households. This support entails a combination of material and technical assistance, with a focus on essential training topics such as food safety, marketing, and bookkeeping. Moreover, CSP has established a community of practice for these cooperatives, providing a platform for discussions with experts on overcoming challenges, accessing new markets, and implementing optimal solutions. Within this framework, COOPs can also address market-related issues, share resources and knowledge, learn from each other's experiences, and explore opportunities for collaboration and partnership, particularly in areas like collective negotiating and production enhancement. Through these concerted efforts, CSP aims to empower local cooperatives, foster growth, and ultimately contribute to the improvement of the community's economic resilience and well-being.
