This report is the result of a fire risk reduction consultancy carried out in Lebanon by a team from Operation Florian in July and August 2016. The consultancy was commissioned by Save the Children Lebanon, in collaboration with the Lebanese Civil Defense, in order to make a situation study and needs assessment.

The situation of displaced populations in Lebanon has a long and complex history, with different groups seeking asylum in the country at various stages. However, this report is primarily concerned with Syrian displaced peoples living in Lebanon since the beginning of the crisis in 2012.There is a specific focus on those living in informal settlements and sub-standard buildings, with some reference to those living in urban settings alongside host communities.

The following analysis and recommendations are designed to help key government and humanitarian sector stakeholders to work together to make improvements in all aspects of fire risk reduction.
