What is the goal about?
Eliminating poverty, especially extreme poverty providing equal rights to economic resources and securing basic social services such as education and health.
How does that relate to the Lebanon context?
Lebanon is doing much to help the poorest and the most in the country through targeted programmes and initiatives that aim to lift those furthest behind out of poverty and reduce their vulnerabilities. At the same many remain below the poverty line and risk being left behind.
Did you know… …that 27% of Lebanese are considered poor, consuming less than $270 per month? …that in 2015, 70% of Syrian refugees in Lebanon spent less than $120 a month, 65% of Palestine refugees in Lebanon spent less than $210 a month and 90% of Palestine refugees from Syria spent less than $80 a month?
