The Lebanon Recovery Fund (LRF) is a Multi-Donor Trust Fund established at the request of the Government of Lebanon that enables donors to pool their resources and rapidly provide funding in the aftermath of the July 2006 war between Lebanon and Israel. It complements other funding mechanisms that may be used by the Government and United Nations organizations.
The LRF, as stated in its Terms of Reference, will finance priority recovery and reconstruction projects that are approved by the Government and that can be executed with the support of Participating UN Organizations within the scope and time frame of national priorities.
The LRF arrangements seek to ensure that:
Unless otherwise agreed by the Government of Lebanon and donors, the LRF will terminate upon completion of all projects funded through the LRF and after satisfaction of all commitments and liabilities.
The LRF is administered by the Multi-Partner Trust Fund Office (MPTF Office) of the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) in accordance with its financial regulations and rules.
The month-long war between Lebanon and Israel in July 2006 caused immeasurable destruction to the lives, livelihoods, and social and physical infrastructure of the people of Lebanon. Prior to the conflict, the Government of Lebanon had prepared a reform agenda that sought to place the country on a path to solid growth and sustainable development. The war and the subsequent total land, sea and air blockade imposed by Israel resulted in a major setback to the country's encouraging economic outlook and to the reform agenda that the Government of Lebanon had elaborated.
The Government presented a strategy for a national early recovery process at the Stockholm Conference for Lebanon's Early Recovery, hosted by the Government of Sweden in close collaboration with the Government of Lebanon and the United Nations, on 31 August 2006. At the conference, the Government of Lebanon presented its early recovery priorities and a number of donors pledged their support. The early recovery process included initial quick-impact, sector-based initiatives developed to respond to Lebanon's most critical needs.
According to the strategy, the Government provides overall coordination of the recovery process, ensuring that initiatives are in alignment with national priorities, and projects are implemented in close coordination with partners, including UN agencies, bilateral development agencies, and international and local non-governmental organizations.
The Lebanon Recovery Fund (LRF), as stated in its Terms of Reference, will finance Government-approved priority recovery and reconstruction projects that can be executed with the support of Participating UN Organizations, in partnership and cooperation with government and non-governmental organizations, within the scope and time frame of national priorities. It will also facilitate the Government's coordination of international assistance and enable the Government to ensure transparent fund administration and project implementation in line with its reform agenda.
