This country brief summarizes Lebanon’s efforts in planning for greater disaster resilience. In past years, the country has learned a great deal from its history of disaster response and recovery experiences. It is now planning to implement a more systematic disaster risk reduction (DRR) agenda by institutionalizing measures for disaster prevention, mitigation and preparedness. The country is also taking steps to strengthen and coordinate its capacities for disaster response and recovery.

This country brief is a product of a regional exercise commissioned by UNISDR-Regional Office for Arab States with support and facilitation from the Disaster Risk Management Unit of the Lebanese Government and UNDP Lebanon. It belongs to the series "Achieving disaster risk reduction in the Arab States, good practice country brief". This series, which documents good practices from the Arab Region, aims to improve stakeholders’ understanding of the critical entry points needed to develop and integrate DRR into national strategies, policies and programs in the region.
