Targeting communities with high concentration of Syrian Refugees namely in the North and Beqaa.
Rapid Participatory Appraisal (RPA)
The ESFD used the RPA to conduct needs assessment in Lebanese communities hosting Syrian Refugees in order to identify preliminary priorities for development interventions. RPA is a semi-structured activity characterized by its short duration, flexibility, low cost and its participatory aspect, carried out to collect quantitative data in a short time frame. Verification of data is based on triangulation that means cross checking the data collected from different sources, mainly direct observation coupled with semi-structured interviews of key informants and focus group discussions.

Identifying priority projects emerges from the Rapid Participatory Appraisal. Selecting projects eligible for financing is based on criteria including voluminous impact (number of communities and number of population served), the expected quick impact of the project and the percentage of Syrian refugees to local population in the targeted area.
Projects Implementation and Sustainability
Selected projects are directly implemented by ESFD and handed over to the relevant stakeholders such as Water Authorities and Municipalities.
