UN-Habitat Country Programme Document 2008-2009 – Lebanon
With an estimate of 87% of the total number of population living in urban areas (a rate higher than that of the Arab States), urbanization is considered one of the key issues facing Lebanon.
The population is distributed unevenly among regions. Around 48% of total number of the population is distributed in Beirut and Mount Lebanon regions alone, whereas only 13.6% live in Bekaa region (the largest governorate in size).
