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.
"Now is the time for action to support resilience" - says a report released today by the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) and the Overseas Development Institute (ODI) about the impact of the Syria crisis in the sub-region. It is against the backdrop of the international community’s inability to resolve, let alone finance the response to the crisis in Syria, that the Top Donors Group for Syria will meet in Kuwait City tomorrow, Wednesday, 18 June.
Lebanon is paying a heavy price for the ongoing Syria crisis. Hard won development gains and the country’s precious stability are threatened, making the Syrian crisis not only a humanitarian and development crisis for Syrians, but also a development and stability crisis for Lebanon.
Statement of the Associate Administrator Berlin Conference on the Syrian Refugee Situation – Supporting Stability in the Region
I wish to congratulate Germany on the foresight and commitment shown in convening this timely and important conference. The Syria crisis has brought violence, destruction, deaths and injuries and continues to do so. It has led to massive internal and external displacement and worsened existing vulnerabilities in an already-pressured sub-region. It has challenged the way the international community collectively responds to crises.
