Responding to the Syrian crisis in Lebanon: Collaboration between aid agencies and local governance structures
Lebanon’s refugee crisis has highlighted the need for much closer coordination among the various organisations and local authorities involved in the response. This paper analyses existing collaboration mechanisms in relation to the Syrian crisis in Lebanon and provides a series of recommendations, on how national, local and international humanitarian actors can
work together more effectively to enhance urban refugee responses in Lebanon and perhaps in other countries.
In the context of a protracted urban crisis, this paper argues that humanitarians will only be able to ensure their responses are sustainable and meet needs on the ground if they work closely with local authorities.
