Despite relatively abundant water resources, Lebanon suffers from water stress and insecurity. Non-revenue water -the water that is pumped and then lost or unaccounted for- is the result of protracted mismanagement of resources within a framework of institutional and policy fragmentation. As a consequence, the breakdown of trust between users and utilities, and the rise of alternative, expensive, and often illegal and/or unregulated water sources keep Lebanon in a vicious circle of unstainable water management.  

MiyahCon has developed a three-intervention pillar program of a) Infrastructure Improvement, b) Capacity Building, and c) Community Engagement to restore user-utility mutual accountability by strengthening infrastructural and managerial capacities of local Water Establishments.
