Quick Impact Projects in Lebanon

Description

Quick Impact Projects in Lebanon support the development of local villages and communities in Southern Lebanon and, thereby, contribute to maintaining good relations between the Finnish UNIFIL troops and the local population and to the public order. The projects also help securing favorable operational environment for the Finnish troops. Southern Lebanon continues to suffer from the damages caused by the 2006 conflict between Israel and Hezbollah. The some 20 projects that were implemented in 2015 improved basic services and social cohesion. The projects included e.g. the development of water distribution systems, building of roads and educational and recreational activities for women, children and youth. Projects have been successful and have enjoyed positive media coverage. In 2016 the focus will be in improving the conditions for children, youth, women, orphans and people with disabilities. Projects are identified and implemented by the Finland's UNIFIL troops following the Quick Implementation Project guidance of the Ministry for Foreign Affairs. Finnish contribution to QIP projects is 120 000 Euros in 2016.
