According to the latest numbers published by the government in 2019, 25% of the Lebanese population is unemployed with the Lebanese youth making up 37% of those affected. The economic and financial crises, which have already been worsening since the end of 2019, were aggravated by the coronavirus pandemic. The World Bank stated that over 70% of the population will be at risk of poverty by end 2020. In the midst of economic, political, and social crises as well as the lack of public policies formulated by the State, Lebanese municipalities must play a central role in action taken at a local level. They must become an open space for citizens and especially youth to engage in dialogue in order to better respond to their needs and build trust amongst them. It is equally important to strengthen and support municipalities in order for them to promote the employment of youth and ensure the development of local economies.
