The security for NGO workers in Lebanon is relatively good. Professional and life conditions are still permissive. The country is experiencing a political, economic and social crisis since October 2019 and the levels of criminality and the risk of thefts have increased. In addition, the conflict in Gaza has caused a series of demonstrations and temporary street closures in different cities, and the onset escalation between Israel and Hezbollah has considerably worsened the security in border communities of southern Lebanon.

The Lebanese remain a very welcoming people and life for foreigners remains relatively comfortable, with some possibilities for internal tourism and recreational activities. There are planned power cuts during some hours of the day and the night. There are sometimes roadblocks or traffic jams that slow down or block traffic on main roads. You should exercise minimum standards of respect and adaptation to the local culture and traditions.
