Initiative To Support Persons With Disabilities In Lebanon The United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) and the United Nations Economic and Social Commission for Western Asia (ESCWA) are jointly launching a new initiative to support persons with disabilities and reduce their exposure to increasing vulnerabilities due to Lebanon’s manifold crises – the dwindling economy, the COVID 19 pandemic and most recently the Beirut Port explosion.
The “Rapid Socio-Economic Assessment of the Areas Affected by the Beirut Port Explosion” looks to examine the adverse impact of the Beirut Port explosion.
Beirut Blast was a real tragedy for the whole country. While humanitarian actors and local NGOs including volunteers continue to address immediate humanitarian needs across affected areas following the Beirut port explosions, the longer-term recovery effort also has to be undertaken backed by proper assessments and planning.
Leaving no one behind” is above all ensuring the protection of the human rights of the most vulnerable. People left behind are those most at risk of not enjoying their civil, cultural, economic, political or social rights.
In the aftermath of the disaster, UNDP is focusing on maintaining continuity between its immediate response and longer-term recovery.
Every person, everywhere in the world, has been affected by the Covid-19 pandemic. Amidst untold suffering the process of producing a Human Development Report often appeared less urgent over the course of 2020.
