    The programme enhanced the human security of both vulnerable refugee and host communities by implementing an integrated approach to address socio-economic and personal security challenges, as well as enhance urban and public services in the municipality of Tripoli. Through partnerships between the municipality, the national government, the UN system, and local NGOs, the programme restored the Abjad community center and rehabilitated the public market Souk Al Albissah, thereby creating hubs of economic and social activity. This helped improve the livelihoods of programme participants and the broader community as well as contributed to greater social harmony between refugees and host communities.
