Child protection and Gender based violence rapid assessment in Lebanon, March 2018
In March 2018, a Child Protection and Gender Based Violence Rapid Assessment was conducted in Lebanon by Plan International with support from War Child Holland. The assessment was informed by 521 surveys and 23 focus group discussions conducted in December 2017 and January 2018 in Akkar, Northern Bekaa and Tripoli.
The study aimed to focus on child labour and child marriage amongst adolescent girls and boys aged 12 to 18 years old and at identifying the scale of existing capacities and resources, risks and needs in child protection and gender based violence. Another objective of the study was to set geographic and programmatic priorities for an effective response in Lebanon among Lebanese host communities and Syrian refugee communities across North Lebanon (Tripoli and Akkar) and Northern Bekaa.
