Byblos

Byblos’ Resilience Journey

Renowned for being the oldest continuously inhabited city in the world, Byblos has withstood various environmental and security shocks over the last 8,000 years. Yet the city remains a role model of coexistence, with people of different religions living together peacefully.

Much of Byblos struggles with floods, storms, and rapid urbanization, and protecting the city’s world heritage sites from these threats is a challenge. Moving forward, Byblos is looking to leverage its rich culture, engaged leadership, and strong social cohesion to fortify its resilience to shocks and stresses.
