The Lebanon Economic Monitor (LEM) provides an update on key economic developments and policies over a six months period. It also presents findings from recent World Bank work on Lebanon. It places them in a longer-term and global context, and assesses the implications of these developments and other changes in policy for the outlook for the country.

The Spring 2023 issue of the LEM titled “The Normalization of Crisis is No Road for Stabilization” provides an update of recent economic developments and assesses the economic outlook and risks within a continuous context of uncertainty and a political stalemate. It examines the continuous decline in the Lebanese economy amidst a normalization of the state of the crisis, markedly distant from a stabilization path, let alone a recovery path.
