About ACTED:

ACTED has been registered in Lebanon since 2006 and has an established country office in Beirut as well as a field office in Akkar. More recently, ACTED has launched activities in the South and in Tripoli, and provides comprehensive support tailored to the geographic contexts and spatial dimensions that stimulate development in the varied sub-national context within the region. With 7 international staff and over 80 national staff, ACTED has been working closely with local authorities and civil society stakeholders at the community level in implementing priority humanitarian interventions such as emergency multi-purpose cash assistance, WASH projects including disease monitoring and infrastructural and behavioral response, and Shelter interventions incorporating multiple modalities.

ACTED is currently implementing long-term development activities such as infrastructure rehabilitation, improving agricultural production, stimulating livelihoods development and support to state and non-state actors for improving service delivery and social stability through collective development planning.

ACTED delivers support responding simultaneously to emergency and development needs through a community driven approach which focuses on engagement and capacity building of local civil society and local authorities, with the aim of promoting accountable governance and civic engagement. Moreover, ACTED in Lebanon has a key emphasis on integrating private sector actors as key drivers in Lebanon’s economic development.
