The ‘Supporting Syria and the Region’ conference held in London on 4 February 2016 agreed ‘a comprehensive new approach on how to respond to this protracted crisis. The promises made in London have the potential to make a significant contribution to improving the lives of both refugee and vulnerable host communities in Jordan, Lebanon and Turkey: the three countries hosting approximately 75 percent of refugees from Syria. However, the conference has failed to deliver with regard to the core issues of the protection of civilians inside Syria and of refugees in neighbouring countries.
This joint agency report sets out what needs to be done to make the London commitments a reality – including making pledged funding available, clear plans for improving access to livelihoods for refugees and regulatory changes in host countries.
