The goal of the project was to restore the production of rangelands to its optimal potential; to seek a balance in development to address most existing constraints related to social aspects and necessary infrastructure; to give attention to the security of land tenure and the social fabric; and to organize beneficiaries in cooperatives or other groupings to be effectively used as delivery channels for project activities.
On land and natural resource governance, the project constituted the first attempt in Syria to apply the participatory approach for the development and management of ancestral, communally used rangeland resources, supporting communities and groups sharing well defined grazing rights.
