A storymap published for the project “SEEDS for Recovery: Unraveling humanitarian interventions in conflict-affected Syria’s Agriculture”

SEEDS for Recovery evaluates the long-term impact of a complex agricultural intervention conducted by FAO in acutely conflict-affected Syria. The project, funded under the CEDIL– Centre of Excellence for Development Impact and Learning initiative, is a collaboration between ISDC and the American University of Beirut. The 3-year duration (2020-2023) project aims at developing and testing innovative methods for evaluation of FAO’s agricultural interventions in Syria.

Results from this project will help refine humanitarian efforts in conflict affected agricultural areas. Areas where interventions did not yield the expected benefits will be looked at in more details to identify where more improvements in agricultural livelihoods are needed.
