The overarching goal of the Lebanon 2021–2023 Habitat Country Programme Document (HCPD) is to contribute to improving the living conditions of children, youth, women and men in Lebanon – regardless of their nationality – by creating liveable urban areas that are effectively planned and managed, environmentally sound, financially viable and competitive, and socially cohesive through good and inclusive governance and equitable distribution of resources.
In line with UN-Habitat’s global mandate, the envisaged, three-year programme includes three interlinked and mutually reinforcing focus areas:
- Promoting inclusive and sustainable urban development,
- Promoting participatory urban planning, management and governance, and
- Improving disaster risk mitigation and effective urban crisis response.
