WASH assistance to support water governance and public water and wastewater services in Lebanon for host and refugee communities

Lebanon Sustainable Infrastructure
January 2021
January 2024

The overall objective of this 36 month action is to strengthen the capacity of water governance actors - public institutions and civil society to deliver sustainable services to local host and refugee communities in Lebanon. This Action will directly target a total of 147,805 individuals across Lebanon, namely South, Bekaa, North and Beirut and Mount Lebanon through three specific outcomes: a) Water Establishments (WEs) are enabled to provide water and wastewater services efficiently and equitably in targeted localities; b) Civil society and local authorities increasingly participate in sector governance and hold mandated institutions accountable; c) Refugee protection space is improved as a result of the reduced environmental impact of wastewater from Informal Tented Settlements and improved communication on the external support to Lebanese water services related to Refugee crisis response.
