The main barriers to the implementation of the project are related to Lebanon’s lack of financial funds, rampant corruption in governmental institutions, political instability, and regulatory framework; therefore, these barriers fall under fiscal, corruption, political, and regulatory barriers. In terms of fiscal barriers, the Lebanese government has been incapable of issuing a bill on governmental expenditure since the year of 2005 under the guise of political instability. Only recently have they managed to issue a draft which covers governmental spending for the year of 2018. This stands as a clear problem since the money aimed at setting up a solar farm can be easily mismanaged and ultimately end up in the wrong pockets. Moreover, the fact that that Lebanon could not issue a clear budget on governmental spending greatly undermines the country’s capability in managing a big project such as a solar farm. A subcategory of fiscal difficulties lies in the financial state of the country.
