A successful inter-agency working session was held to better understand current systems and legal frameworks in Lebanon surrounding temporary and alternative care for children, particularly non-Lebanese children, and to map out next steps for developing alternative care options. The national CPiEWG held a retreat where sector members identified the need for increased guidance and tools to help standardize and improve quality of psychosocial programming, implement the case management practical guidance, strengthen support for high-risk and vulnerable children and establish emergency and alternative care options for children without appropriate care.

Staff from eight organizations operating in Akkar, Tripoli, and Tyr participated in the fourth round of peer-to-peer coaching sessions, which focused on addressing physical abuse within homes and the family.
