Geographical Distribution of Amiri State Property (by District)

Amiri lands constitute the majority (52 percent) of all real estate belonging to the Lebanese state, or 31,907 different properties. The district of Baalbek alone includes more than 33% of the total Amiri lands, while around 23% of them are located in the district of West Bekaa, 17% in the district of Rashaya, and 7% in the district of Akkar, which means that 80% of the Amiri lands are concentrated in predominantly agricultural environments (the Bekaa region and Akkar). This concentration is nothing but a historical result of the land management system during the Ottoman era.
