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).
