Lebanon

A small country with great potential – a multicultural society on the Mediterranean

Map of Lebanon

Even today, many people associate Lebanon with the dark years of its civil war. Yet since the war ended in 1990, the various religious groups have lived together peacefully and prosperity levels in this small Mediterranean country have risen again. Once known as the “Paris of the Middle East”, the capital of Beirut has regained its status as a dynamic, modern city in the region. However, Lebanon is surrounded by trouble spots and has also been directly affected by the violent conflicts in Syria and Iraq. Alongside the population of 4.4 million Lebanese, the country is also home to more than a million refugees. Public supply systems are becoming increasingly overwhelmed: schools are overcrowded, power cuts have become a daily occurrence, there's a lack of sewage treatment plants and many areas suffer from drinking water shortages.
