  • Improving Living Conditions in Palestinian Gatherings Host Communities

  • ART GOLD LEBANON

    In Lebanon, empowering local communities needs to be at the center of development. The country has long suffered the effects of war, instability and the resulting increase in poverty and regional disparities. This has considerably weakened the population nationwide while impacting more broadly the marginalized and most vulnerable groups of youth and women.

  • ART GOLD Bekaa

The programme focuses on three main themes: local economic development, decentralized cooperation aiming to enhance the exchange of expertise, and the participatory work to attain national ownership.

  • ART GOLD South

    South Lebanon, long neglected and once enmeshed in regional and internal conflicts, includes two of the poorest districts in country: Marjeyoun and Bint Jbeil. The lack of quality public services, environmental degradation, youth social exclusion, and the poor livelihood condition of the majority of the population are among the main challenges confronting the region.

  • ART GOLD North

    North Lebanon is largely recognized to comprise some of the poorest segments of the Lebanese population. ART GOLD operation in North Lebanon covers the three districts of Akkar, Minnieh Dennieh and Tripoli due to their relative increased poverty. The living conditions survey of 2004-2005 showed that out of the seven districts in northern Lebanon, Akkar, Minnieh Dennieh and Tripoli occupy the first rank in the table of poverty districts.

  • Addressing Urban Hot Spots in Lebanon
