Grant signed with OFID for Southern Lebanon

20.12.2013

On 19 December, 2013 ITF Enhacing Human Security signed Grant Agreement with OPEC Fund for International Development (OFID) for funding of 500.000,00 USD, which will be implemented through ITF in 2014 and 2015 for the project of land mine clearance of agricultural land in Southern Lebanon.

Under this proposal it is expected that ERW contaminated land will be released to the local population for the subsequent mainly agricultural activities. The landmines and other ERW cause an ongoing terrible indiscriminate threat to Lebanon civilians; hinder development of contaminated areas and deny access to agricultural land, the primary source of economy, cause economic loss and infrastructural damage and remain a constant reminder of the war. They seriously threaten the security of people, as well as their livelihoods in the area where agriculture represents one of the main economic activities and lead to death, injury and disability.
