MASAR for local Governments Project (Lebanon)


Titre : MASAR for local Governments Project.

Pays/Région : Liban

Date : 19/12/2018 to 31/12/2022

MASAR for Local Governments is a program funded by the EU MADAD trust fund. The overall aim of the program is to strengthen the long-term resilience of targeted subnational governments and their host, refugee and IDP populations to deal with displacement. Specifically, MASAR focuses on the urban setting, which is the background of processes of displacement, investment, employment and service delivery. In Lebanon, the program aims to assist the governorates of : i) Baalbek- Hermel ; ii) Akkar ; and iii) coastal plain north of Tripoli and their respective Unions of Municipalities to deal with accelerated urbanization caused by the crisis.

MASAR has three specific objectives : Specific Objective 1 : To improve the capacities of subnational governments to engage in holistic, area-based planning and consider different scenarios that responds to the needs of host, refugee and IDP populations. Specific Objective 2 : To improve service delivery to generate greater social stability outcomes based on the needs of host, refugee and IDP populations. Specific Objective 3 : To empower subnational governments and service providers to create economic opportunities through better access of municipal investment that benefit host, refugee and IDP populations.

MASAR will mobilize municipal experts from Lebanon and Europe to contribute to build the capacity of subnational governments. This will include, among others, provision of technical advice ; training ; coaching and mentoring addressed to municipal Planning Units or Service Departments. Capacity building activities will be complemented by concrete pilot quick impact projects aiming to, for instance, designing an urban layout to improve an existing network of streets and roads to better accommodate a higher influx of traffic, or to set up a municipal solid waste sorting plant to better cope with increasing volumes of litter.
