The operation, which targets both IS and fighters linked to al-Qaeda’s central leadership and the affiliated group Jabhat al-Nusra, risks alienating other rebel groups in Syria and strengthening support for IS.

Supporting Local Recovery Initiatives Through Micro-finance in Iraq, Jordan, Lebanon, the Occupied Palestinian Territories, Somalia and Yemen

Report
Qatar Charity

The challenges facing those caught up in a seeming never-ending cycle of human-made and natural disasters seem endless. Oftentimes a growing reliance on external assistance leads to a form of 'dependency syndrome' which not only limits the effectiveness of recovery and rehabilitation efforts in the community but also stunts any lingering individual development initiatives of those trapped in this cycle.

Syrian refugees: Inter-agency regional update, 29 September 2014

HIGHLIGHTS

  • Some 160,000 Syrian refugees have crossed into southern Turkey since 19 September following an insurgency of the Islamic State in northern Syria.

  • Support is limited for the 84 per cent of refugees not living in established camps in Turkey. Systems are not in place to address shelter needs, identify the extremely vulnerable and provide protection or other basic services. The number of registered refugees is likely to be only part of the overall caseload, whose needs have not yet been fully assessed.
