On 4th August 2020, a large explosion occurred at the port of Beirut, Lebanon that left more than 6,500 individuals injured and caused at least 180 deaths. To assess the impact of the explosion and the arising needs and vulnerabilities, the Lebanese Red Cross (LRC), in coordination with the Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA), have conducted large multi-sectoral needs assessments (MSNA) across 11,008 households. To support these efforts as well as draw attention to the gap on the needs and vulnerabilities of foreign nationals that were affected by the explosion, IOM has undertaken a secondary data review of LRC’s data. This map uses the data of 1,896 foreign national households with migrant workers in Beirut to provide an overview on the nationalities of foreign nationals.
IOM’s Global Data Institute (GDI) and Georgetown University’s Institute for the Study of International Migration (ISIM) produced the first Periodic Global Report on the State of Solutions to internal displacement (PROGRESS).
