Food Security and Agriculture team strategy and Area of focus

Within the built experience of Bonyan team in implementing ERL activities, future projects will focus on:

Syria contains a lot of fertile agricultural lands and skilled laborers (farmers) who are ready to work, but they need financial support.

Therefore, Bonyan will work on using lessons learned and its experiences of successful agricultural projects to target more beneficiaries from both farmers and non-farmers to ensure the optimal reactivation of the agricultural sector in NW Syria.

Working on expanding the scope of sustainable projects that play a key role in securing income for beneficiaries which allow them to become self-sufficient. Bonyan will mainly work on projects related to manufacturing agricultural products.

In addition, the agricultural sector faces many difficulties, the most important of which is climate change, which affects the quality of soil, crops, and irrigation water.

Therefore, Bonyan will focus in all its projects on applying environmentally friendly methods to face the climate change risks.
