Our work - Environment and Energy

The Environment and Energy (E&E) Programme works closely with the Government of Lebanon to provide policy support for more effective environment and energy management. The programme also works with local communities and civil sector organisations to improve livelihoods through improved natural resource management. Our aim is to move Lebanon towards achieving the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs), more specifically Goal 7 on environmental sustainability. The programme is funded by several donors and also collaborates with the private sector.
