On the 14th of January 2023, ILO together with its donor the German Development Bank KfW and its implementing partner the Lebanon Mountain Trail Association, celebrated the rehabilitation and upgrade of the 590-km Lebanon Mountain Trail at a side trail in Bchaaleh. Our thanks go to all the women and men involved in the rehabilitation & to the involved ministries & municipalities all across Lebanon.

This project is being executed through an implementing partnership with the Lebanon Mountain Trail Association, developing and protecting the major and longest distance trail in Lebanon to promote a socially responsible tourism that safeguards the natural, cultural, and historical heritage along the trailside, promoting social unity across communities. The cooperation between Germany, ILO and LMTA is geared towards improving economic opportunities of rural and often marginalized communities, bringing economic and social benefit to local communities.
