UN-Habitat–UNICEF neighbourhood profiles are reports containing mapped and statistical data and analysis, generated within an area-based framework, and synthesized to respond to the evidence needs of sector specialists, multisector practitioners, and local authorities. 
Data is gathered participatively through field assessments, household surveys, key informant interviews, and focus group discussions. 
Neighbourhood profiles offer an integrated place-based analysis covering multiple sectors and issues, including governance; population; safety and security; health; education; child protection; youth; local economy and livelihoods; buildings and housing; basic urban services; and access and open spaces. Data findings are prefaced by a contextualization that covers the neighbourhood’s history. 

Neighbourhood profiles are in line with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), the United Nations Strategic Framework (UNSF) for Lebanon, and the Government of Lebanon and the United Nations Lebanon Crisis Response Plan (LCRP) 2017–2020.
