FEG provided technical support for Save the Children to conduct an HEA baseline for its project locations in metropolitan Beirut. The aim of this baseline work was to help understand wealth and socio-economic dynamics, inform thresholds for ‘cash plus’ programming, and support livelihoods projects modelling for poor and very poor wealth groups. The focus of the work was the ‘host population’, including Lebanese and Palestinian refugees (PRL). The current year outcome analysis modelled the initial economic impact at household level of the crisis that started in 2019, including exchange rate weakening, price increases, job losses, wage decreases.
