The last “Rapid Poverty Assessment in Lebanon” report conducted by UNDP was back in 2008 back when the Syrian Crisis hadn’t begun yet. That’s why a more recent one was conducted over a year ago and the numbers were even more alarming than 8 years ago:

– 30% (or 1.5M individuals) of the Lebanese population live on less than 4$/day or 120$/month
– About 300,000 are considered extremely poor and live on less than 2.5$/day (unable to meet their basic food needs)

You can find above the MTV report and below a summary of the full report:

– 3% of the population own more than $100,000
– 30% of the population own between $10,000 and $100,000
– The remaining 67% own less than $10,000

% Poverty across Lebanon:
– 16% in Beirut
– 22% in Mount Lebanon
– 25% in Nabatieh
– 32% in the South
– 36% in the North
– 38% in the Bekaa Valley
