GENERAL OVERVIEW

North Lebanon, which previously constituted one governorate with seven districts, was split into two governorates in 2014: Tripoli and five surrounding districts (T5) maintained the denomination of North Governorate, while the district of Akkar became a governorate by itself. Tripoli Governorate is composed of six districts; Tripoli, El Koura, El Batroun, Bcharre, Zgharta, and El Minnie-Dennie.
It has a mixed confessional population of Sunnis, Alawites, and Christians. Tripoli is the capital of the north Governorate and the second largest city in the country. Inter-agency coordination and sector coordination meetings for the North take place in Tripoli.
