UN-Habitat and UNDP: Building Structures to Deliver Basic Urban Services to Palestine Refugees Living in “Adjacent Areas”

Project completed

In the aftermath of Nahr El Bared Camp crisis, the notion of “Adjacent Area” emerged to distinguish between what is known as “Old Camp” and “New Camp”. In this context, the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) and UN-HABITAT joined their efforts to conduct a research on Basic Urban Services (BUS) to cover all Adjacent Areas of Palestine Refugee Camps in Lebanon.
