Environmental Impacts of the Syrian Crisis in Lebanon Fact Sheet
Feb 17, 2016
In September 2014, the Ministry of Environment (MoE), with support from the European Union (EU) and the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), published the “Environmental Assessment of the Syrian Conflict (EASC) & Priority Interventions”, which provided an extensive analysis of the incremental environmental impacts of the Syrian conflict.
The main objective of this Updated Fact Sheet in 2015 is to provide an overview of the environmental situation vis-à-vis the impact of the Syrian conflict on the environmental resources one year after the assessment of 2014. The update is based on previous methods and findings presented in the EASC of 2014.
