Protection of rights in Lebanon

01 January 2011

UNRWA’s protection programme which was established in Lebanon at the end of 2009 is implemented by a Protection Officer and Operations Support Officers in all areas of Lebanon. The protection approach of UNRWA is threefold:

  • Ensuring that protection needs are addressed in all aspects of programming, project design, policies and procedures, as well as in staff training.
  • Delivering services in a manner that promotes the rights of refugees and ensures their security and dignity.
  • Promoting the respect and fulfilment of refugees’ rights through monitoring, reporting and intervention and highlighting the need for a just and durable solution to the plight of Palestine refugees to the international community.
