UNDP plans and implements its programs in partnership with key stakeholders, from government, UN agencies, NGOs, international financial institutions and bilateral donors, to civil society, the private sector and universities.
Supported by a team of over 300 mostly Lebanese professionals, our current programme includes more than 60 local and national projects that focus on improving areas critical to Lebanon's future.
The United Nations Volunteers (UNV) Programme was initiated in Lebanon in 1993 under the umbrella of the United Nations Development Programme.
UNDP has been operational in Lebanon for nearly five decades, since 1960. Its presence in the country has been continuous in the best of times and in the worst of times, in times of war and peace. The period immediately following the Lebanese Civil War which had raged since 1975 until 1990 and which was superimposed by further invasions and military occupation, was a period of transition for the country as well as for UNDP.
As an organization, we have had to continually evolve in orientation and coverage to help in the identification of national needs and priorities in an often rapidly changing development and security setting in order to support the achievement of long-term development objectives. UNDP strives to reflect the ability and resilience of the Lebanese to adapt to continuing development challenges.
