Public Services in Lebanese Municipal Unions - National Survey Report

Public Services in Lebanese Municipal Unions - National Survey Report  

December 2017


Around 75% of Lebanon’s municipalities cooperate within unions of municipalities that pool and coordinate their resources to deliver public services, such as infrastructure works, economic development, health, environmental protection, solid waste management, and public safety. Based on a nationwide survey across two thirds of Lebanon’s municipal unions, this report examines the state of play of public service delivery in key policy areas - namely solid waste management, security and municipal police, accountability and participation - and identifies the needs and challenges of local government authorities in their effort to provide citizens with effective and democratic public services. The report concludes with policy recommendations to improve the current decentralisation system in Lebanon.
