Lebanon

Geopolitics

MOUNT LEBANON: this mountain, crossing the country from north to south, home of rains and persecuted minorities for centuries, gave its name to Lebanon.

ECONOMICAL: one of the main influences of neighboor countries (Israel, Syria, Iran, Palestine, Saudi Arabia etc.) on Lebanon. They are also political, military, cultural, religious.

BEIRUT: cosmopolitan capital of the country, highly impacted by the civil war that took place between 1975 and 1990. Nowadays, it is the political and economical center of Lebanon. And cultural ? Not so sure, with the competition of Byblos, Baalbeck and Beiteddine.

ARABIC OR PHOENECIAN? Both my captain ! But Lebanese today are more keen to claim to be of phenician origins.

NON-EXISTANT OR ALMOST NON-EXISTANT, is the attention given to the disaster risk reduction strategy in Lebanon. This means plenty of potential for PSF !
