International recognition of Amel’s Innovative Methodology


Since its creation, Amel collaborates with international organizations to demonstrate its innovative methodology and settle global co-responses to migration crisis.

In acknowledgement, the organisation has been recognised internationally, notably through:

  • Consultative status with the UN Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC);
  • Observer status with the International Organization for Migration (IOM);
  • Membership in global networks including the CHS Alliance (CHS), the International Council for Voluntary Associations (ICVA), UN DPI/NGO section and The Geneva Global Health Hub (G2H2).
  • Recognition by the United Nations Office for South-South Cooperation (UNOSSC) as the first and only Lebanese center of excellence for public service delivery and capacity development. This confirms the United Nation’s consideration of Amel as a key actor in alleviating hardship among marginalized communities.
