Lebanon: RRP6 Monthly Update - June 2014: Social Cohesion and Livelihoods

Highlights

On the livelihoods side, activities continued at a regular pace in June. 847 people benefitted from vocational training activities in June, and 691 from income generating opportunities.

There are less activities to report on the social cohesion side. This is mostly due to the fact that most projects supporting communities and municipalities were completed in the last months, while new ones are at the stage of identification or implementation.

Partners working on peacebuilding projects are however still active, with two more local conflict mitigation mechanisms established (in Akkar/Wadi Khaled and Mount Lebanon/Beirut southern suburbs). In addition, 51 change agents (officials, media, youth and community leaders) were trained to address misperception and mitigate tensions.
