UNDP-supported green houses in Rural Qamishli are now producing enhanced vegetables seedlings, which in turn are distributed to affected small farmers in Al-Hassakeh to help them restore their livelihoods, while creating many job opportunities for displaced families and their host community members in the different implementation phases.

Mr Rizk was in New York recently and spoke to Mustafa al-Gamal about how the agency's projects could serve as a model for the day when the guns finally fall silent.
