Audit of USAID/Lebanon’s Landmines and War Victims Program.

Country: Lebanon
Fiscal Year: 2011
Agency: USAID
Description:

Southern Lebanon, including the District of Jizzine, has been particularly affected by the country’s ongoing strife. Military activities and the neglect of key infrastructure have seriously damaged the local economy. To address these issues, USAID/Lebanon awarded a cooperative agreement in September 2006 to the War Rehabilitation Fund to support the program Expanding Economic Opportunities for Victims of War in the District of Jizzine—South Lebanon.

Originally scheduled to end in August 2007, the mission extended the program through August 2012 and increased the estimated budget from $2.8 million to $5.7 million.
The fund supports financial and technical assistance for people living with disabilities, particularly those who have sustained mobility-related injuries from unexploded ordnance and antipersonnel landmines. In addition, the fund supports the design and enforcement of international standards to ensure that practitioners who provide care to survivors are competent and that treatment and equipment are used effectively to increase the mobility of people with disabilities.

This audit will determine whether USAID/Lebanon’s Landmines and War Victims Program is expanding viable and sustainable economic opportunities for victims of war in the District of Jizzine, Lebanon.
