The Syrian crisis, which led economies to decline and regional economic ties to break, has changed the region in various ways, but precise assessments of its economic impact on Syria and its neighbors remains unclear.TheThe Lebanese government estimates the total number of Syrian refuges as high as 1.5 million individuals which accounts to approximately 30 percent increase in Lebanon's population.In an attempt to support ensuring effective and accurate targeting of interventions, INFOPRO last week released a book on the "Economic Impact of the Syrian Crisis on Lebanon" providing detailed assessments that aim to better understand the context and challenges of host communities, and to assist in the prioritization of humanitarian aid and host community support programs.The book tries to quantify both the direct and indirect economic effects of the Syrian crisis and refugees' influx on Lebanon providing estimates of the economic costs of the influx, across different sectors. The book stresses the different methodologies, angles and focuses used by the different publications and studies on the effects of the Syrian crisis.
