Expertise France is responsible for implementing in Lebanon a program aiming to support the Syrian refugee population and the Lebanese host communities. The program “QUDRA 2 – Resilience for refugees, IDPs, returnees and host communities in response to the protracted Syrian and Iraqi crises” is a regional action co-financed by the EU Regional Trust Fund in Response to the Syrian Crisis (EUTF Syria), the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) and the Spanish Agency for International Development Cooperation (AECID). 

In partnership with the Lebanese Ministry of Social affairs (MoSA), Expertise France under the tutelage of the French Ministries of Foreign Affairs and Economy and Finance with a strong inter-ministerial vocation will implement Qudra 2 Programme. This 3-year programme (September 2019 to August 2022) aims at contributing to mitigating the destabilising effects of the protracted Syrian and Iraqi crises and to better responding to the resilience needs of refugees, internally displaced persons (IDP), returnees and host communities.


In coordination with MoSA, Expertise France is therefore launching a call for proposals whose specific objective is to improve protection opportunities for children, youth and other marginalised groups throughout the country.

The aim of this call for proposals is to select and support several Lebanese civil society organisations to implement protection response and prevention activities for vulnerable populations in 14 Social Development Centres (SDCs) in collaboration the MoSA.
