RECENT ILO POST-CONFLICT SUPPORT in LEBANON
ILO/CRISIS, January 2008
In 2006, after the war, the ILO conducted two studies together with the UNDP on the impact of conflict on Small and Medium Enterprises and on household living standards in Lebanon. Since August 2007, ILO has been implementing a Local Socio-Economic Recovery project (LSER) in southern Lebanon with a total budget of USD 1.3 Million, which is funded by the Lebanese UN Trust Fund. Within the framework of this project, the ILO adopted an overall rapid participatory approach of facilitating the identification of local priorities for economic recovery, which will be directly implemented by local stakeholders. The LSER is becoming the umbrella project that will contain the others.
