Lebanon Crisis Response Plan 2015-2016

16 December 2014

The LCRP is a joint GoL - UN plan to ensure that the humanitarian response to the Syria crisis tangibly benefits Lebanon and helps to stabilize the country during this challenging period. It continues the necessary work of delivering humanitarian assistance to the displaced from Syria and other vulnerable groups, while expanding plans to invest in Lebanese services, economies and institutions. The Plan is a crucial channel through which the international community can support Lebanon to address the needs of both its own people and the displaced from Syria. The LCRP represents an opportunity to invest in national capacities through Lebanese ministries and institutions to implement the priorities of the Lebanon Stabilization Roadmap

The Plan focuses on the most vulnerable communities, based on priority needs identified. Programmes will target up to 2.9 million of the most vulnerable. It will benefit Lebanese and the displaced from Syria and other vulnerable groups in a balanced way but with a different focus of activities:

(i) short and temporary humanitarian response and protection with a focus on 1.5 million displaced Syrians, 336,000 of the most vulnerable Lebanese and 50,000 Lebanese returnees from Syria, 315,000 Palestine refugees in Lebanon and Palestine refugees from Syria:

(ii) medium to long term support through service delivery for 1.47 million vulnerable Lebanese including Lebanese returnees, 1.3 million displaced Syrians and 225,000 Palestine refugees - focusing particularly on localities where Lebanese are feeling the greatest impact of the current crisis and long-term poverty

The LCRP is the result of the collective effort of 77 government ministries, UN agencies and national and international NGOs - through the work of nine different sectors and with inputs from the civic sector, private enterprise, aid personnel and local authorities working in communities across the country. The LCRP will be steered by the Minister of Social Affairs, as designated by the Prime Minister and the UN Resident and Humanitarian Coordinator, in collaboration with Crisis Cell ministries and the lead UN agencies for refugees and stabilization (UNHCR and UNDP respectively). An ongoing review of UN alignment to Government structures will continue to identify opportunities to reinforce Government leadership of the LCRP and its implementation

The LCRP funding requirements
$2.14 billion is requested for the overall plan to benefit up to 2.9 million vulnerable individuals.
