Position context and key challenges:

Lebanon has generously opened its borders to refugees fleeing conflict in neighbouring Syria, and now hosts over 1.1 million refugees. After four years, Lebanon’s resilience has reached a critical point; economic growth has faltered, public services are overwhelmed and unemployment is rising. In a complex context and with many communities already vulnerable prior to the crisis, Lebanon’s fragile stability requires an integrated assistance framework, which encompasses all affected communities. In 2014, ACTED developed and implemented a holistic approach to meet basic emergency needs and ensure continued basic service provision, targeting the most vulnerable at the household, community and institutional levels.


In Greater Beirut, living conditions of vulnerable households have deteriorated rapidly due to tremendous pressure on housing markets, increasing prices, and limited access to income. In response, ACTED provides integrated WASH and Shelter emergency assistance to displaced families in informal settlements, unfinished buildings, and other types of sub-standard housing. This aims to ensure access to clean water, basic washing and sanitation facilities, improved hygiene practices, protection from the elements, and privacy. This assistance is complemented by cash transfers to enable the most vulnerable to meet their basic needs. In total, over 110,000 individuals have benefited from such assistance in 2014.


Working with service providers, local authorities and civil society in Akkar, Beirut and Mount Lebanon ACTED has also implemented over 30 Community Support Projects to increase the capacity of host communities and authorities to cope with challenges caused by the refugee influx, including pressure on local resources and infrastructure. These focused on supporting basic service provision (water provision, waste management, electricity, school infrastructure), as well as on addressing the economic impact of the crisis on vulnerable communities’ access to income through vocational training and support to agricultural livelihoods. In 2014, these community-level interventions have benefited over 100,000 individuals.


In 2015, ACTED Lebanon will engage with humanitarian stakeholders to ensure the cost-effectiveness of activities, notably through increased reliance on cash assistance, which has proven an effective delivery mechanism, as well improved targeting of the most vulnerable communities and households. Strengthening the capacity of Lebanese civil society and local authorities to jointly tackle key community concerns, including service provision and income generation, will also become an increasingly critical means of addressing the impact of the Syrian crisis in Lebanon. Finally, ensuring community participation in the delivery and coordination of assistance will allow for more effective interventions, as well as improved protection of refugees by addressing rising social tensions.
