As the Syrian crisis continues into a fourth year, increasing numbers of displaced Syrians seeking refuge in neighbouring countries have formed informal settlements (IS) in close proximity to host communities. This has been the case in Lebanon, where an absence of formal camps has led to a proliferation of improvised housing accommodations. With the number of registered refugees in Lebanon surpassing 1.1 million during the course of this assessment, affordable and suitable housing has become increasingly scarce.

The objective of the assessment is to provide a baseline of data and information on needs and vulnerabilities across WASH, education, child protection, health and other relevant sectors to better inform the humanitarian community’s response to some of the most vulnerable refugees in Akkar and in Lebanon.
