UNHCR estimates Lebanon is hosting 1.5 million of Syrian refugees, making it the country with the highest number of refugees compared to its population. The social integration between hosting community and refugees is limited. Lebanese cities are therefore vulnerable and in need of medium and long term interventions to sustain both refugees and Lebanese people in everyday life.
The project “Ghazze in progress” aims at the enhancement of the environmental conditions of Municipality of Ghazze, focuses on water supply system and solid waste management and the regeneration of a small urban park in the center of Ghazze.
The interventions of upgrading will be provided by the local community engagement and the involvement of relevant stakeholders and local Authorities.
