These dashboards reflect selected aggregate achievements of 3RP regional sectoral indicators on the humanitarian and resilience responses of more than 240 partners involved in the 3RP Inter-Agency Appeal in Egypt, Iraq, Jordan, Lebanon and Turkey. Indicators are regionally aggregated and targets are based on full funding of the 3RP 2017 and an expected population of 4.7 million refugees by end-2017.
Social and economic insecurity continue to exacerbate protection risks for the 2.3 million Syrian refugee children hosted in the region, 48 per cent of whom remain out of school. Given these pressures, child marriage rates have more than doubled among Syrian adolescent girls since the onset of the conflict, rising from a pre-conflict baseline of 13 per cent inside Syria to over a 27 per cent at present. In key 3RP countries, 47 per cent of refugee households reportedly rely on the income generated by a child to meet basic needs.
Food Sector partners reached almost 2.4 million individuals with food assistance during April. The Food Sector regional response to the Syria crisis is currently covered through the first half of 2017, with breaks in assistance expected to start during the second half of the year.
As at the end of April, 899,263 Syrian girls and boys across the region continued to have access to formal education in schools in camp and host communities. At the same time, more than 33,000 Syrian boys and girls were enrolled in informal or nonaccredited education. Since the start of 2017 some 14,501 teachers and education personnel received incentives, while more than 1.8 million children received school supplies.
The 3RP spans a range of activities from direct interventions that ensure short-term critical needs of Syrian refugees are met, through support for primary, secondary, and tertiary health services both in camps, rural and urban settings and systematic investments that reinforce the capacity of national health systems.
The continued strategic priority for the Sector is to provide assistance to meet the ongoing basic needs of Syrian refugees, based on a multi-sectoral household profiling and identification methodology, specific to each country. The Sector continues to provide assistance to the poorest populations to ensure that they can meet their survival needs in a manner that allows choice and promotes dignity.
The Shelter Sector continues targeting the shelter needs of refugees living in camp and urban settings across the region. As outlined in the sector objectives, these projects include interventions such as targeted cash for rent for extremely vulnerable Syrian refugees and host community members, supporting the completion of unfinished housing units, the upgrade of substandard housing units in urban and rural areas, and rehabilitation of camp infrastructure and shelter upgrading in camps.
The overarching goal of the WASH Sector is to enhance more sustainable and cost-effective WASH services for Syrian refugees living in camps/settlements and having more efficient, cost-effective and equity-driven service providers in areas with a significant proportion of Syrians living in host communities.
Since the start of 2017, Livelihoods Partners assisted 6,397 refugees and host community members with short-term and/or long-term employment opportunities and 27,412 youth and adults in increasing their employability through job training, internships, job placement and language courses.
Syria: Between 1 and 31 May, IOM provided over 7,400 displaced persons and returnees in Rural Damascus with family water kits. Moreover, IOM’s livelihood project is ongoing, targeting IDP population in four camps in Idleb with livelihood assistance and establishment of market areas.
In May, WFP resumed life-saving assistance to over 60,000 Syrians stranded at the north-eastern border with Syria, the Berm, for the second time this year. The distribution was carried out through a third party contractor. The distribution is complemented with registration through iris scanning being conducted by third party monitors and through UNHCR.
70 YEARS AND COUNTING
Seven decades ago, the world was recovering from a devastating world war. For millions of child survivors of that war, peace still encompassed a landscape of significant challenges and damaged futures. UNICEF was created to help those children – no matter who they were, no matter where they were from. The only thing that mattered for the nascent organization was achieving results for children in need.

In Lebanon and Jordan, providing daily meals gives a sense of community back to refugees fasting in the holy month of Ramadan.
BEKAA VALLEY, Lebanon – As the sun sinks, the Ramadan Kitchen in Lebanon’s fertile Bekaa Valley is a hive of activity, buzzing with the sounds of clanging pots and pans, food being packaged into plastic containers and the laughter and chatter of a hundred cooks and volunteers.
In Syria, the delivery of humanitarian assistance to several locations continued to be hampered due to ongoing or renewed hostilities. During May 2017, only three interagency convoys to Duma, Wadi Barada and Jirud in Rural Damascus took place, with UNICEF delivering multi-sectoral assistance to 42,000 people in need.
