The Programme aims at enhancing access to basic urban services, mainly WASH, and improving shelter conditions in these areas which have been hosting refugees from Syria mainly since 2012.

It aims at profiling the 42 Palestinian gatherings in Lebanon, summarizing the main needs and providing a set of recommendations for better response in these areas, especially following the accommodations of new refugees. The main objective is to use this document as a draft for enhancing response to the host and the new refugee communities among organizations active in the gatherings.
