Based on the experience gained through the protected areas project with the Ministry of Environment, Green Line was selected in 2001 by the World Bank to assist Dr. Ramy Zurayk from the American University of Beirut to conduct an assessment of natural resources in the Yammouneh region, North Lebanon .


  • The overall objective of this project, spanning over 6 months, was to develop a biodiversity conservation strategy through sustainable use of natural resources in Yammouneh. A team of 5 Green Liners conducted a taxonomic surveys (including fauna and flora), socio-economic surveys and produced, using GIS, a set of base maps of the region depicting all natural features, including core biological conservation area and nature conservation areas.
    This assessment and conservation strategy will be used to develop a Medium Sized Project for Biodiversity Conservation through Sustainable Use of Natural Resources at Yammouneh.
