According to government estimates and the Lebanon Crisis Response Plan 2017-2020 (LCRP), up to 1.5 million Syrian refugees are currently hosted in Lebanon, equivalent to a quarter of the Lebanese population. With the highest per capita concentration of refugees in the world, Lebanon’s social stability in many municipalities is fragile as large numbers of people increase pressure on services, infrastructure and jobs – the latter being a particular source of tension.

In particular, the ILO seeks to promote entrepreneurship amongst young women and men and facilitate the provision of financial and non-financial support, encouraging job creation (for both Lebanese and Syrian refugees) and social stability, through the establishment of Lebanese-Syrian joint income generating initiatives and/or Lebanese-owned businesses with employment opportunities for Syrian refugee youth.
