Lebanon - Economic Impact Study: Direct and Indirect Effects of the WFP Value-Based Food Voucher Programme, July 2014


This study examines the direct and indirect impacts of WFP’s e-card programme on the Lebanese economy. It is part of a broader United Nations initiative to assess the economic impacts of humanitarian assistance in Lebanon. The e-card programme is an important element of the international humanitarian response for Syrian refugees. It is expected to transfer US$345 million to over one million vulnerable refugees in 2014, using a network of 300 contracted stores throughout Lebanon.
