Since the start of the Syrian Conflict the number of Syrian refugees in Lebanon has been continuously increased over time but stabilized in the recent past. The partially high number of refugees in some of the communities impacts the water supply, wastewater and hygiene/healt situaton of the resident population and the refugees quite negatively. The main obejctive of the UNICEF programme is meant to improve the sanitary and healt situation of host population and refugees in a selected number of communities through the implementation of rehabilitated and/or new water supply and wastewater infrastructure measures. The target of the programme is defined through a substantial increase of adequately operating rehabilitated or new water supply and wastwater service connections. This will reduce the pressure on public potable water and sewage systems caused by the increased utlization by host communities plus Syrian refugees.
The UNICEF, at the request of th eMinistry of Energy and Water, contributed in financing part of the water and wastwater infrastructure projects in Lebanon by financing the designs of these projects, their construction and their construction supervision.
