Profiling the Vulnerability of Palestine Refugees from Syria living in Lebanon
The “Profiling vulnerability of Palestine refugees from Syria living in Lebanon” report is a multi-sectorial analysis of the vulnerability experienced by the Palestine Refugees from Syria [PRS] according to the following sectors: economic; education; food-security; health; protection; non-food items; shelter and water, sanitation and hygiene. It provides information on the living conditions of PRS to inform decision-making on programmatic activities. The survey is based on the VASyR [Vulnerability Assessment of Syrian Refugees in Lebanon] and adapted for UNRWA’s specific context. Data was collected from all recorded PRS in Lebanon through a household survey conducted by UNRWA in August 2014 [12,735 PRS families and 44,227 individuals at the time]. An overall vulnerability score was calculated.
The report is accompanied by data-visualizations profiling increased dependency on cash-assistance and resulting negative coping mechanisms, as well as the risks and impacts of the lack of valid legal residency for PRS families in Lebanon.
