INCAM project contributes to increase Lebanon’s capacity in important environmental concerns based on a regional approach that assess the anthropological impacts on natural resources. As a bottom up project, INCAM will first support collection of existing research data to assess the status of natural resources and identify knowledge gaps in environmental assessment capacities, especially in the intensively developed Lebanese coastal zones. A detailed action plan will be developed to strengthen institutional capacities of the Lebanese National Council for Scientific Research (CNRS) and convert it into a national and regional research centre of excellence. Further on, the project will enhance EU- Regional cooperation and networking by increasing the role of the EC in general and of the FP7 in particular. Special attention is given to training and dissemination.
