The Programme is co-financed by the EU Regional Trust Fund in Response to the Syrian Crisis (EUTF Syria), the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) and the Spanish Agency for International Development Cooperation (AECID) to contribute to alleviating the impact of the Syrian and Iraqi crises on refugees, internally displaced persons (IDPs) and host communities in Lebanon, Jordan, Turkey and Iraq.

The Middle East is currently experiencing a profound crisis. The conflicts in Syria and Iraq are both a reflection and a transmitter of this crisis, with growing potential to further destabilise neighbouring countries and the wider region. These crises have resulted in a humanitarian disaster affecting more than 13.5 million people who were forced to flee their homes from Syria, and more than 17 million people in need of humanitarian aid (12.2 in Syria and 5.2 in Iraq).
Lebanon is now home to the largest number of Syrian refugees per capita relative to its total population, putting a severe strain on the country’s fragile infrastructures, economy, and security. As of November 2020, the Government of Lebanon estimates that the country hosts 1.5 million Syrians who have fled the conflict in Syria, including 879,598 registered as refugees with UNHCR, along with 257,000 Palestine Refugees in Lebanon, Palestinian refugees from Syria, other UNRWA eligible persons from Lebanon. Even though Lebanon has not signed the 1951 Refugee Convention, it continues to host the highest number of displaced per capita in the world. The Lebanon Crisis Response Plan 2017-2021 (LCRP) estimates the total number of people living in Lebanon at 5.9 million, with 3.2 million people in need, including 1.25 million vulnerable Lebanese. Some 44 per cent of all displaced Syrian individuals (646,811 people) reside in these the governorates of Akkar, Baalbek-Hermel and Beqaa bordering the Syrian territories.
During the last two years, host communities and refugee populations have seen their situation dramatically worsen due to the profound political, social and economic crisis that has hit the country, and that was compounded by the impact of the COVID 19 disease, leading to a dramatic increase of poverty levels throughout the country. The Beirut Port explosion has further devastated the country’s general economy and the society’s capacity to cope. Finally, the current political crisis has considerably undermined the legitimacy and capacity of the State to provide services and the financial breakdown of the country is severely impacting previously subsidized sectors, such as oil, electricity and pharmaceuticals.
