Within the context of the MedUP! project, this document presents the context of social entrepreneurship in Lebanon. More specifically, it starts by examining what social entrepreneurship in Lebanon entails to better set the target group. It then moves to identifying social entrepreneurs’ needs and challenges, followed by an understanding of the support ecosystem around these social enterprises to better link the needs and challenges of SEs with potential interventions at the ecosystem level. Finally, the report presents the macro level including suggested policy framework public and private actors, and initiatives. The last section of the report provides recommendations at the three levels.
