DFID plays a central role in the UK Government’s strategy of a Lebanon that is: a) stable, democratic, prosperous and secure; b) increasingly resilient to regional crises and the threat of violent extremism; c) able to provide social and economic opportunity to all people within its borders; and d) a strong partner on defence and security issues. Lebanon provides for 1.5 million refugees from Syria, more refugees per head than any other country. Conflict and instability in Lebanon would lead to serious humanitarian, political, economic and security consequences for the region, including the potential for significant irregular migration to Europe, and could harm the UK’s national security interests.
