?Agricultural damage from summer conflict in Lebanon reaches $280 million according to the FAO. While the conflict affected the agriculture sector directly, the indirect economic impact in terms of lost markets and labor opportunities was much more important. The Food and Agriculture Organization will start-up funding 17 million US$ for some priority initiatives. Harvests tree damage and crop production are the main losses. MOREP ‘s Agriculture Reform Chapter stresses that funding to reestablish this sector should be managed together with finding contract with other countries for products export. Our products should be also made by biological way to find more clients and hence better contracts of crop export. Agriculture Reform Chapter suggests to establish a commission of Bio-Agriculture with the FAO and the Ministry of Agriculture to help these kind of production through out Lebanon.?
