Who we are

The Lebanon Reforestation Initiative (LRI) is a program funded by the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) and implemented by the United States Forest Service (USFS).

LRI implements a community-based reforestation program that has resulted in the planting of more than half-a-million native trees throughout Lebanon since 2011. The project promotes a participatory approach to reforestation, bringing together diverse committed municipalities, local stakeholders, Lebanese civil society organizations, and other actors, such as the private sector, to restore and replant degraded community lands.
