The MPM baseline assessment is designed to systematically assess, through a series of MPM Rounds, cadastres (Admin 3 areas) in Lebanon to quantify the presence of migrants per this administrative area to support operational assistance, coordination, and planning. The data collection is based on estimations received from Key Informants (KI) who are mostly composed of Mukhtars, local authorities of these areas, and Municipality officials. The MPM relies on KIs to provide reliable information for a specific and known area. For data collection, the administrative area of a cadastre was chosen as it is the smallest administrative unit with dedicated administrative officers, and the areas are small enough to ensure that information collected on the area are reliable. As a result of the situation and arrangements of migrant populations, repeated rounds will strengthen the data collected and resultant baseline. An assessment was conducted on a total of 1,610 cadastres spanning 26 districts and 8 governorates in Lebanon, which covers approximately 98.96% of all cadastres in the country. During the initial data collection phase, it was estimated that 207,696 migrants were identified within these 1,610 cadastres across the 26 districts, again representing a coverage of approximately 98.96% of all cadastres in Lebanon. Furthermore, between October 2020 and June 2021, a total of 3,857 key informants were interviewed.
