1 Executive Summary
Lebanon is hosting at least one million Syrian refugees officially registered with the UN, many of them living in informal tented settlements and residential and non-residential buildings scattered around the country. Unfortunately, tented settlements and substandard buildings, due to their informality and spontaneity as they are built in an ad hoc manner, are at high risk of fire.
The Lebanon Cash Consortium (LCC) is comprised of six INGOs that provide severely socio-economically vulnerable refugees with $175 worth of Multipurpose Cash Assistance (MCA) per month. The LCC uses a formula called the Proxy Means Tests (PMT), which generates a composite score representing economic welfare, to target households eligible for MCA.

By the end of February 2016, more than 182,364 households countrywide received winter cash or voucher assistance. An additional 70,000 households received in kind items such as clothing kits, stoves and blankets. Most agencies have concluded winter plans by the end of February 2016 and started post distribution monitoring exercises. An interagency lessons learned workshop is planned in April to assess the efficiency and effectiveness of the plan.
