Humanitarian Overview

The crisis in Syria has had a profound humanitarian, socio-economic and political impact on Lebanon. With just under 1 million registered Syrian refugees in a country of 4 million inhabitants, Lebanon has the world’s highest number of refugees per capita.

The country is in the grip of a severe economic crisis. This manifests into depleted savings, growing debt and increased difficulty in accessing income. Poverty and food insecurity levels are high, with 30% of people living below the poverty line. Among Syrian refugees, this situation is particularly acute - 76% live below the poverty line.
