As part of the SUPMED project coordinated by Hatem Belhouchette, CIHEAM Montpellier is recruiting 4 experts and a postdoc:
The SupMed project is funded by the French Facility for the Global Environment (FFEM, or Fonds Français pour l’Environnement Mondial) and coordinated by the CIHEAM Montpellier. It aims to support farmers in Lebanon and Egypt in the implementation of adaptation and mitigation strategies to climate change (CC).
It concerns the Luxor Governorate in Egypt and the Beqaa valley in Lebanon, two areas marked by significant levels of poverty, public agricultural advisory systems undergoing restructuring and a risk of natural resource overexploitation (water and soil) aggravated by climate uncertainty. In Lebanon as in Egypt, private and public agricultural advisory services significantly rely on capacity development as well as a frame of reference in connection with the implementation of strategies to deal with climate change.
