As part of an International Labour Organization (ILO) project in Lebanon’s Beqaa Valley, men and women from both Syrian refugee communities and host communities are working alongside each other to build a 25 kilometre-long irrigation channel.


The project is run under the Employment Intensive Infrastructure Programme (EIIP) , which aims to create work opportunities for Syrian refugees and host communities through infrastructure improvement. Implemented by the ILO – with funding from the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) through Germany’s KfW development bank – the project emphasizes decent work for both women and men.
