The National Poverty Targeting Programme is the largest regular poverty-targeted social safety net cash assistance programme in Lebanon for the poorest & most marginalized Lebanese families. A gender analysis of the NPTP was undertaken by the Ministry of Social Affairs, the World Food Programme, & UN Women between April & June 2022.
