Lebanon and UN working together to support Syrian refugees

23 April 2015

The Lebanese government and the United Nations are working together to ensure that urgent needs of more than 1.3 million Syrian refugees can be met, according to the UN Special Coordinator for Lebanon.

Since her appointment in December, Sigrid Kaag has been leading efforts to mitigate the impact on Lebanon of more than four years of civil conflict in neighbouring Syria.

She recently visited a number of settlements as well as vulnerable Lebanese host communities, where she says people are hopeful for a solution to the political crisis.

May Yaacoub spoke with Ms Kaag who is on a visit to the region and began by asking her what she saw.
