The Cultural Heritage and Urban Development (CHUD) Programme constitutes the main intervention of
preservation and enhancement of the urban heritage of the cities of Tripoli, Byblos, Baalbek, Saida and Tyr.
The contribution of AFD to the project – targeting Tyr and Tripoli – aims both at restoring the economic
attractiveness of the historic centres, valorise their tourism and commercial assets, and improving social
cohesion and the living conditions of the inhabitants. Consequently, it is based on three components:
1. Rehabilitation of old centres and improvement of urban public infrastructure,
2. Preservation of historic sites and streamlining their operations,
3. Assistance and training actions for local authorities in the management and leadership of old centres.
