Conservation of the 13th-Century Crusader Sea Castle at Saida

This project, which includes the documentation, conservation, and interpretation of the site, directly supports the Embassy's efforts to promote economic growth and social stability in the midst of a refugee crisis and to develop relationships in a strategic yet underserved region.
