Context and key challenges
Seven years into the Syrian conflict, Lebanon remains at the forefront of one of the worst humanitarian crises of our time and has shown exceptional commitment and solidarity to people displaced by the war in Syria.
By Philippe Lazzarini
As the seventh year of conflict in Syria begins, Lebanon faces overwhelming socioeconomic, security and demographic challenges. It hosts more than one million people who have fled the brutal conflict in Syria and this, together with the economic slow down, has placed a huge strain on the limited resources and infrastructure of the country. Nevertheless, Lebanon remains unwavering in its hospitality and support to those in need. With no end in sight for the conflict how will Lebanon continue to cope with this crisis?
