The impact of the Covid-19 total lockdown on the World Food Programme multi-purpose cash recipients in Lebanon, January 2021.

The purpose of this rapid survey is to gather top-line insights on the impact of the Covid-19 total lockdown in Lebanon, prohibiting all but essential movement, on multi-purpose cash (MPC) recipients. This includes households’ ability to access and spend their assistance, prepare for the lockdown and meet their basic needs.

The sample includes 160 Syrian refugee households receiving MPC from the World Food Programme (WFP) living in the Bekaa, North, Beirut and Mount Lebanon (BML) governorates. Data collection was completed via phone survey over five days between 20-26 January 2021.

CAMEALEON is an NGO-led network, co-managed by the Norwegian Refugee Council, Oxfam and Solidarités International. The purpose of CAMEALEON’s work is to conduct independent research and analysis in support of the World Food Programme’s multi-purpose cash programme for Syrian refugees in Lebanon, as well as a contribution to wider cash-related learning.
