Accommodation

Private accommodation is available for rent across the country (houses and apartments).

Currently the level of refugees has strained the housing resources available, especially in the north of the country bordering with Syria.

Additional Operational Support                                                                         

In general, operational support equipment is in good supply in local markets. Construction equipment (water pipes, pumps etc) is available (mostly imported). Plastic water tanks are locally produced.

Potable water is generally available via the public water network, however Beirut city often faces water shortages during the summer season (July to October) due to lower rainfall. Private water tankers fill the gap during this time, at roughly 15-20 USD (22,500 to 30,000 Lebanese Pounds) per 1,000 litres of water.

Tents are produced locally and also imported. In most cases, tent tarpaulins are imported, while the other parts (structure, frame etc) are produced locally.

ICT equipment including laptops, scanners, printers, etc are widely available in the local market. However, in some cases, specific equipment which is not common in Lebanon, will require importation (e.g. Specific server equipment, large-scale map plotters etc).
