Short Description:

Overall goal

Approximately 27,000 Palestine refugees were displaced from Nahr el-Bared camp and its adjacent areas in mid-2007 as a result of the conflict between the Lebanese Army and the militant group Fatah Al Islam.

UNRWA, in coordination with the UN Country Team and UN Resident Coordinator's Office, and working with the ICRC, and national and international NGOs through six clusters (shelter, health, education, protection, livelihoods, food security), has provided emergency operations to supply food, clothes, basic household items, and emergency schooling, psychosocial activities and health services for the 5,449 displaced families.

The UNRWA Relief, Recovery and Reconstruction Framework was drawn up to set out UNRWA's strategy for the Nahr el-Bared Palestine refugee camp (NBC) from mid-2008 to the end of 2011, around three overall outcomes:

1) Ensuring that the humanitarian needs of the displaced NBC refugees continue to be met during the recovery and reconstruction phases;

2) that the basic preconditions for the recovery of physical and economic infrastructure are put in place, and that

3) NBC is rebuilt on its original location and all displaced refugees are re-housed in the reconstructed camp by 2011.
