Lebanon faced an unprecedented crisis in 2020-2021 that led to a deepening economic precarity amongst Lebanese and refugee populations and a worsening overall health and protection situation, particularly for the most vulnerable or marginalized groups. In 2021, nine out of ten households were living in extreme poverty and almost all of them continued to incur debt to survive according to the Vulnerability Assessment of Syrian Refugees in Lebanon. The August 2021 Emergency Response Plan estimated that 1.9 million people (including Lebanese, Palestinian and migrants) were in need of assistance, in addition to the 1.5 million Syrian refugees also in need of humanitarian assistance in Lebanon. For GBV an estimated 393,000 people across 26 districts are in need of GBV services in addition to Syrian refugees.
