The Vulnerability Assessment of Syrian Refugees (VASyR) conducted in Lebanon in 2013 and 2014 provided insight into many aspects of the living conditions and vulnerability of Syrian refugees at regional and country level. This executive summary will show that significant changes have been noted since VASyR 2014, which highlights the dynamic nature of refugee households’ characteristics and living conditions in Lebanon.

This updated multi-sectorial overview will allow the humanitarian community to confirm or adjust 2014 plans and programme design. Data is especially valuable for targeting purposes; it contributes to revising the expected caseload in need of assistance, to analysing the performance of eligibility criteria for different sectors as well as estimating the degree and types of vulnerability at national and district level.
