Introducing Difaf from Lebanon: A new partner organisation of SuSanA

We would like to welcome Difaf from Lebanon as a new SuSanA partner organisation!

The following text is taken from their application form and was written by the partner organisation themselves.

Description and Activities in Sustainable Sanitation:

Difaf's mission is to identify and assess activities that impact water and environmental systems, to design, implement and monitor engineering and management solutions, and to promote appropriate technologies and sustainable methods for natural resources restoration and conservation.

Difaf is a consultancy and technical design bureau born in 2014 in Lebanon from a team of engineers, natural scientists, and policy experts. We are eager to deliver proficient cross-disciplinary work tailored for resilient localized successes. Difaf bridges the gap between science and policy, and to deliver measurable and direct improvements in water and environmental resource management.

With an Integrated Water Resources Management (IWRM) approach, Difaf targets sectors where activities have the highest degree of impact on the hydro-environment such as: fresh water resources, wastewater, agriculture, solid waste, and energy. Whether working with municipalities and local actors, or with central government and international NGOs, Difaf employs proven participatory methods and communication skills resolving challenges that would harmonize bottom-up and top-down development goals.

Re: Introducing Difaf from Lebanon: A new partner organisation of SuSanA

Dear Hussam,

Welcome to SuSanA and to the Forum!
I have to admit, I had to look up what Levant is... ( ). So I am learning already. :-)

Have you considered adding information to your partner profile on SuSanA e.g. by adding your main projects that you currently have going?

Your organization's profile currently looks like this on the SuSanA website:

Just to show you an example of a SuSanA partner who has added a few of their projects, see here the one by RTI:

Everyone's projects together can then be viewed in the SuSanA project database (accessible under Resources on the SuSanA website):

Let me know if you need help with anything. Again, a warm welcome and I hope to read more from you on the Forum in the future.
