Burt met with reporters at the end of a two-day visit to Lebanon – the second in less than a year – to meet with officials and visit several U.K. supported projects, including a Syrian refugee informal tented settlement in the Bekaa Valley.Lebanon hosts the most refugees per capita in the world, representing an estimated quarter of the country's population. Just fewer than 1 million Syrian refugees were registered with UNHCR as of November 2017, though some Lebanese officials estimate the number to be 1.5 million or more. The U.K. has made significant contributions to Lebanon in the realms of security, humanitarian aid and support for infrastructure and economic projects.
