Due in large part to the ongoing Syrian crisis, Lebanon continues to face significant challenges across several areas, and conditions have reached a tipping point. Constant violence, terrorist attacks and a rapidly growing refugee population have all taken their toll on the Middle Eastern country.

Since the start of 2014, EuropeAid and the U.N. Development Program have launched several tenders and grants with the intention of easing the situation in Lebanon. Both agencies recognize the urgency of alleviating the refugee problem while also addressing the needs of the Lebanese population.
