Needs and Vulnerability Assessment of Migrants in Lebanon
26 May 2021
Migrants tend to be overlooked for humanitarian assistance. However, given socioeconomic conditions in Lebanon, and combined with a history of employment abuse, and lack of familial support networks, migrants are an extremely vulnerable group in Lebanon.
The Needs and Vulnerability (N&V) assessment was designed to identify priority needs and risks among the migrant population in Lebanon, resulting from the economic crisis, the COVID-19 outbreak, and from the Beirut Port Explosion. Specifically, the assessment looks at how these negative developments have affected the protection, social, economic, financial and health situation of migrants living in Lebanon. It seeks to inform humanitarian programming, as well as longer-term protection and assistance interventions targeting migrants in vulnerable situations in Lebanon.
