The Legislative and Administrative Land and Property Rights Framework – Lebanon report deals with the core functions of land management and administration: land tenure, land value, land use, land development and land disputes resolution. This final version of the previously published draft includes updated graphics and a new layout. Information and data collected for this report was finalized in 2022; any changes that took place after this date are therefore not reflected in the publication. 

Land management and administration is gaining increasing importance in Lebanon in view of the scarcity and degradation of land and water resources that affects society country-wide. Land governance constraints in Lebanon indicate that legislation related to land use, planning, protection, zoning and other land-related legislation must be updated and their application must be effectively enforced to protect the non-renewable land resources in the country. 

The report is part of a series of publications that tackle land issues in the Arab region. They aim to provide an overview of relevant policies, laws and regulations relating to different aspects of land governance and land-related decision-making processes, and to analyse the institutional set-up and key stakeholders in the land sector of each country.
