COVID-19 supplies for Lebanese border and security agencies
June 29, 2020
Within the framework of the EU-funded project IBM Phase II in Lebanon, the International Centre for Migration Policy Development (ICMPD) facilitated the procurement and delivery of personal protective equipment (PPE) for the Lebanese border and security agencies in response to COVID-19 pandemic on 12 June 2020 in Beirut, Lebanon.
COVID-19 prevention supplies were delivered to the Lebanese border and security agencies that are partners in the EU-funded project Integrated Border Management (IBM) in Lebanon, Phase II, implemented by the International Centre for Migration Policy Development (ICMPD). Donated by the European Union, these supplies are meant to support Lebanon in combatting this pandemic and addressing the challenges it poses on border and security agencies, especially in light of the planned gradual reopening of border crossings that requires introducing new mechanisms to equally ensure the safety and health of both employees and travellers.
