WFP Lebanon 2022 in Review
The WFP Lebanon 2022 in Review highlights WFP’s assistance to refugees and Lebanese in 2022

In 2022, high inflation, reduced access to basic services, and increasing social tensions because of the severe economic crisis continued to drive high levels of poverty and food insecurity. The first ever Integrated Phase Classification (IPC) food security analysis for Lebanon found that between September and December 2022, about 2 million people living in Lebanon – 37 percent of the total population – were estimated to be in acute food insecurity situations. WFP supported 2 million Lebanese residents and Syrian refugees in 2022 with cash-based transfers or in-kind food assistance to meet their needs, in pursuit of Sustainable Goal 2, Zero Hunger.
