EXECUTIVE SUMMARY, Population and Housing Census in Palestinian Camps and Gatherings in Lebanon.
This report provides a snapshot of the Palestinian refugee population based on the details collected. in the census of Palestinian refugees The important findings of the report are summarised below. After two years of discussions and preparations both the Lebanese and Palestinian Governments. signed a Memorandum of Understanding Annex A in October 2016 based on the Council of. Minister s Decision issued two months earlier 1 The decision was based on a recommendation from. The Lebanese Working Group on Palestinian Affairs in Lebanon. Recommendations of the Lebanese Working Group on Palestinian Refugee Affairs2. The Working Group considers that lack of official comprehensive and accurate data on. Palestinian Refugees in Lebanon is a major factor restricting the ability of the Lebanese State. to formulate adequate policies on Palestinian refugees based on solid scientific grounds 2 3. After viewing the work done by Lebanese Palestinian Dialogue Committee with the. concerned parties to conduct a comprehensive census for Palestinian refugees in Lebanon. according to objective and professional standards, The discussion led to the elaboration of the following recommendation. Conducting a comprehensive census of Palestinian refugees in Lebanon4 comprising the. refugees as well as their socio economic status in all Camps adjacent areas Palestinian. Gatherings and other places of residence 5,ref2 grounds 3 4 Lebanon5 residence 6. The above decision to hold a nation wide population and housing census throughout the territories. of Lebanon was entrusted to be carried out by the CAS and the PCBS under the administrative and. supervisory umbrella of the LPDC It was finally carried out in 2017 and is called as the Population. and Housing Census in the Palestinian Camps and Gatherings in Lebanon PHCCG 2017 It seems. however that the house listing of buildings and population enumeration was ultimately carried. out in all Palestinian Camps Adjacent Gatherings and Other Gatherings but possibly excluded. some other places of residence on the Lebanese territory though mandated above as isolated. Palestinian refugees can be covered only when a full population census of the country is taken The. Population and Housing Census PHCCG 2017 was conducted under the overall supervision of LPDC. and technically supported by CAS and PCBS and carried out during July 17 31 2017 The Census. Reference Moment was fixed for 17 July 2017, 1 This census which was based on a decision of the Lebanese Council of Ministers on 25 8 2016 was followed by. the signing of a memorandum of understanding between the Lebanese and Palestinian governments on 19 10 2016. http lpdc gov lb statements key findings of the national population and housin 398 en. 2 Unified Lebanese Vision for the Palestinian Refugees Affairs in Lebanon November 2016 http lpdc gov lb ar. chive a unified lebanese vision for the palestinian refu 424 en. 3 According to UNRWA records there are currently 472 013 Palestinians in Lebanon registered with UNRWA Around. half of them live in 12 UNRWA mandated refugee Camps and many Gatherings Therefore the findings of this census. do not represent the entire registered Palestinian refugee population in Lebanon but rather the population living in. side refugee Camps and Gatherings, 4 Besides the Armenian refugees who arrived in Lebanon in 1918 1922 and 1939 an estimated 130 000 refugees. from Palestine arrived in Lebanon after 1948 of whom 105 000 were registered with UNRWA in 1951 About 400 000. refugees were registered with UNRWA in 2010 however a survey conducted that year estimated that the number of.
