Impacts of multiple crises including that of COVID-19 on the fishing sector and coastal areas in Lebanon: inventory and restoration. – Help2Lib
The Help2Lib project aims to better understand the impacts of the multiple crises in Lebanon (COVID-19, economic, explosion of the port of Beirut, oil spill) on Lebanese coastal fisheries and marine habitats through an inventory and the implementation of 'actions to restore essential habitats such as nurseries. This will notably involve better understanding the changes in the behavior of Lebanese artisanal fishermen in connection with the crises and helping to improve their income in the long term and make their activity more sustainable by reducing environmental impacts. This work should help prioritize environmental needs, as well as improve the development of indicators for assessing the ecological state of coastal systems. It could also help to better apply and coordinate management measures at an appropriate scale for ecosystem conservation.
