By April 2014, the number of Syrian refugees fleeing into Lebanon had reached one million, making Lebanon the country with the highest per-capita concentration of refugees worldwide.

UNHCR worked with the Government of Lebanon to ensure that Syrians in urgent need of protection continue to be admitted into the country, while also providing protection and assistance targeted particularly to vulnerable refugees.  An extensive refugee coordination system was in place, steered by the Government in cooperation with UNHCR and other partners, and working through nine sectors throughout the country.

The scale of the refugee crisis in Lebanon was a key challenge in 2014, having a significant impact on refugees themselves, the communities hosting them and national response systems. Security concerns were heightened in August 2014 as violence from the Syria conflict spilled over into northern Lebanon. Measures introduced by the Government in October 2014 as a result of these concerns presented challenges for admission, residency and regularization of Syrian refugees.

As a result of both the scale of the needs and funding shortfalls, in 2014 UNHCR prioritized life-saving interventions, including in the health sector, and limited cash assistance for extremely vulnerable refugees.
