Working Paper: Building Resilience in Akkar's unions of municipalities

For the longest time, Lebanon’s northern region of Akkar has been deprived of its fair share of government-supported development projects. Decades government negligence have incapacitated the municipalities in that remote area, leaving them with little to no flexibility to recover from hardships.

This policy paper presents stakeholders and NGOs with a rounded idea on the critical situation in Akkar, particularly the Dreib El-Awsat and Jurd El-Qayteh areas. It presents recommendations and specific actions, which include establishing good governance and building local communities’ resilience to endure and “hold on” during hard times.
