On January 24, 2019, in the context of USAID BALADI’s assistance program aiming to implement local community development projects that respect environmental standards, Caritas Lebanon organized a workshop in partnership with Terre Liban. The objective was to launch an “Eco-Municipality Manual” for the municipalities supported by BALADI program implemented by Caritas Lebanon and the René Moawad Foundation, and  BALADI CAP program implemented by MSI. The Manual provides municipalities with support and guidance in their projects for them to become more sustainable and abide by environmental rules and regulations. More than 145 participants attended the workshop, including mayors, members of the municipal councils, and representatives of 67 municipalities. Each attendee received an eco-friendly kit and each municipality was gifted a pine plant provided by Lebanon Reforestation Initiative (LRI)
