Syria - Syrian Refugees and Food Insecurity in Lebanon: Secondary Literature and Data Desk Review, March 2013

In line with the WFP and UNHCR global memorandum of understanding, the agencies will conduct a Joint Assessment Mission (JAM) to assess the food security and nutritional situation of refugees residing inside and outside camps in Lebanon. This is done by reviewing the quality and appropriateness of on-going food assistance operations within the country; assessing the impact of refugee influx on the food security of host communities, especially those in poverty pockets; assessing the potential for targeted food assistance and identify potential target groups for these interventions; and assembling data to enable UNHCR and the WFP Lebanon country offices to develop a Joint Plan of Action (JPA).

This secondary data desk review was undertaken to support the JAM processes planned for Lebanon in March 2013. The major geographical focus areas are:
  • Bekaa Valley
  • North Lebanon (Akkar and Tripoli)
  • South Lebanon and Beirut Suburbs
