The United Nations spent nearly $1 billion in Lebanon in 2017 on a wide-ranging set of programs, from food and cash aid for refugees to the training of security forces and the modernization of civil record-keeping systems. The international organization outlined the activities of all of its agencies in Lebanon in a report released Friday covering the first year of implementing the U.N. Strategic Framework for the country, aimed at bolstering security, domestic stability and economic development in the country. U.N. agencies spent a total of $950 million on humanitarian and development activities in Lebanon in 2017, of which the largest share – nearly $300 million – came from UNICEF for education programs, followed by the World Food Program and the UNHCR, the U.N.'s refugee agency.
