Our Joint Programmes

Conflict Prevention and Peacebuilding in Lebanon
Though Lebanon has been free of wide-scale violent conflict for two decades, tensions remain between and within its more marginalized communities, particularly Palestinian refugees and their Lebanese hosts. The joint UN programme aimed to reduce these tensions and avoid a relapse into armed conflict by fostering economic development, improving Palestinian self-governance and promoting peace-building in conflict-prone communities.


Strengthening Palestinian self-governance to build peace in Lebanon

In a small meeting room in the Nahr el Bared refugee camp in North Lebanon, 25 men and one woman are working to solidify peace between Palestinian refugees and their Lebanese hosts.
