In this research, I attempt to develop a different angle to analyzing the impact of sectarian conflict in Lebanon. To explain long-standing challenges that have been aggravated by a devastating crisis, this research aims to follow the full project cycle management which frames development projects in Lebanon. With a focus on the water sector, this paper focuses on types of conflict that development practitioners in Lebanon face when dealing with the socio-cultural and political realities on the ground.
