The Lebanon Youth Parliament for Water (LYPW), in cooperation with the Economic and Social Commission for Western Asia (ESCWA), are organizing the first Lebanese Youth Food Systems Dialogue with focus on the relation between water and food systems.
Lebanon’s water resources face multiple challenges in terms of quality and quantity. With a population increase at an estimated rate of 1.2% and large number of displaced refugees, stress on the water supply has increased. Discharge in rivers and springs has also regressed over the last five decades with more than half of the Lebanese resources contaminated. As such, the Youth Dialogue aims at providing an integrative and engaging platform to enable youth as key stakeholders to share perspectives, experiences, issues and solutions on water for food. It is intended to build youth perspective through proposing game changing actions and solutions and identifying responsibilities that would improve the reciprocal relation between water and food including efficient water use and food safety.
