Three years into the Syria conflict, neighbouring countries continue to provide assistance to millions of Syrian refugees. Yet the strain on national budgets and community resources is pushing more host country citizens into poverty and straining social services, infrastructure and national treasuries. Thus neighbouring governments are preparing national development response plans, which address continuing refugee needs, but also seek to ensure the well-being of their own citizens. These plans, closely coordinated with humanitarian assistance plans, anticipate a multi-faceted response to assure immediate relief, strengthen individual and community resilience and rebuild essential development infrastructure.
