What we do

UNDP Lebanese Electoral Assistance Project (LEAP), funded by the European Union and the United States Agency for International Development, has the main objective to strengthen institutions and processes for the conduct of transparent and inclusive elections in Lebanon.

UNDP LEAP works closely with the Ministry of Interior and Municipalities, which has responsibilities for electoral management, administration and overall electoral operations. The project also supports other electoral stakeholders, such as the Supervisory Commission for Elections, the Constitutional Council and judicial bodies with responsibilities for electoral disputes. In addition, the project works in close cooperation with civil society organizations active in the area of elections.

Through a multi-component approach, the second phase of the project has the
intended outcomes of providing technical assistance and support in the following
key electoral areas:

  1. Management and Administration of Elections
  2. Supervision and Monitoring of Elections
  3. Resolution of Electoral Disputes
  4. Initiatives to enhance inclusiveness and awareness of voters and citizens with a particular focus on women, youth and first-time voters and persons with disabilities
