INTRODUCTION & CONTEXT
IOM Appeals for USD 234 Million to Help Displaced Syrians, Host Communities in Syria and Region
Switzerland - As the conflict in Syria continues, IOM is appealing for USD 234 million to continue to provide lifesaving humanitarian assistance inside Syria and for Syrian refugees in neighbouring countries.

Regional Office 2017 Requirements: US$3,500,000
Over five years of violence in Syria, approaching its sixth year in March 2017; the crisis has brought death and destruction to Syria. Millions of people have been forced from their homes or have fled the country. Many of them are children. Around 6.3 million people are displaced inside Syria, 5 million people live in besieged cities and hard-to-reach areas, and 4.8 million refugees live in the neighboring countries and beyond.
Amman, 5 December 2016 - With the conflict in Syria well into its sixth year and with little progress on the political front, United Nations Agencies and NGO partners today appealed for US$4.69 billion in new funding to continue vital work over the next two years.
The Regional Refugee and Resilience Plan (3RP) brings together more than 240 partners in a coordinated, region-wide response to assist 9.1 million people in Turkey, Lebanon, Jordan, Egypt and Iraq - 4.7 million Syrian refugees and over 4.4 million members of the communities hosting them.
For 2017, humanitarian partners will require $22.2 billion to meet the needs of 92.8 million people in 33 countries. The initial appeal for 2016 stood at $20.1 billion to meet the needs of 87.6 million people in 37 countries. This is in stark contrast to the $2.7 billion called for in the first six inter-agency humanitarian appeals launched in 1992. The last quarter century has seen an overwhelming shift in frequency, scale and magnitude of humanitarian emergencies.
UNHCR estimates that more than 14.5 million people have been displaced from their homes in Syria and Iraq, with over five million seeking refuge in neighbouring countries. Syrians affected by war are falling further into poverty with increasing vulnerabilities. In Lebanon, 70 per cent of Syrians are living below the poverty line and 50 per cent in extreme poverty, while in Jordan 93 per cent are living under the poverty line. With the continued fighting in Iraq, people are being displaced increasingly and becoming more vulnerable the longer their displacement.
Education is a basic human right, enshrined in both the 1951 Convention relating to the Status of Refugees and the 1989 Convention on the Rights of the Child. And during times of displacement, education plays an additional, crucial role in fostering social cohesion, addressing psychosocial needs, and providing a safe and stable environment for those who need it most.
