Jounieh is a coastal city in Keserwan District, about 16 km (10 mi) north of Beirut, Lebanon, backed by the mountains. Since 2017, it has been the capital of Keserwan-Jbeil Governorate. Located 10 km from Biblos, and 50 km from Tripoli, it has more than 100,000 inhabitants, mostly Christians.

The construction sector developed slowly starting from Sarba to Harat Sakhr, and finally the coast of ‘Alma. The buildings also started expanding around the city as the agricultural sector contracted and became confined to the coasts of Kaslik and some orchards in Ghadir, Harat Sakhr and the coast of ‘Alma. In the beginning of the seventies, Jounieh was transformed to a major and complete tourist center.

Jounieh has some future priorities and concerns such as the environment, the public transportation and human resources level.
