Humanitarian situation and needs

Since the outbreak of the Syrian crisis in April 2011, according to UN estimations, 6.6 million people have been internally displaced, while 4.8 million refugees have been registered in the neighboring countries as of June 2016. Lebanon is the second host country for Syrian refugees with over 1.049 million refugees registered as of March 2016 for an overall population of less than 4.5 million (representing more than 23% of the population). Prior to this crisis, Lebanon was already hosting half a million Palestinian refugees; the pressure on the Lebanese government and local population is very high.

In April 2015, the United Nations Security Council declared that the international community has to help Lebanon in its efforts to host more than 1 million refugees from neighboring Syria. Since the beginning of March 2015, the government of Lebanon, through the General Security Directorate, is enforcing entry regularization among refugees entering from Syria. The Lebanese government has also asked the UNHCR to temporary stop the registration process, hence new refugees and new born babies cannot be registered anymore and refugees that arrived after the 5th of January 2015 have been deregistered (around 11,319 individuals).

While Palestinian refugees are settled in camps, there are no official camps for Syrian refugees in Lebanon. On a case by case basis, the government may authorize the establishment of formal tented settlements (FTS). However, Syrian refugees are mainly settled in small shelter units (SSU), collective shelters (CS) or informal settlements (IS). The spillover of the Syrian crisis into Lebanon compounded pre-existing vulnerabilities among the Lebanese society. Refugee populations have in many cases settled in areas inhabited by impoverished and vulnerable Lebanese communities further stretching limited or non-existent sources of income and public services at the local level. This situation will place an increased economic strain on the families, and in addition to the expected decrease in basic assistance due to low funding levels, an escalation in negative coping mechanisms (such as begging, child labor, child marriages, sexual services for food/accommodation, petty crime, etc.) might be witnessed.

Our action in the field

Since 2012, PUI has been actively involved in the Lebanon emergency response to the Syrian crisis with presence in the North (Akkar), Mount Lebanon and South (Saida) of Lebanon.

In 2016/2017, PUI´s strategy in the country is based on two programmatic axes:

  • Humanitarian Assistance Program: to provide a protection-based humanitarian assistance and services for the most vulnerable refugees and host communities affected by the Syrian crisis;
  • Resilience Program: to reinforce the self-resilience and resilience of the affected communities through the development and strengthening of community-based structures.
