Improving Cash-based Interventions
Multipurpose Cash Grants and Protection Enhanced Response Capacity Project 2014–2015
The International Organization for Migration (IOM) was founded in 1951, in the aftermath of World War II in order to assist displaced people.
i. Lebanon’s political development since independence has been influenced primarily by its evolving confessional system. However, this system, originally established to balance the competing interests of local religious communities, is increasingly seen as an impediment to more effective governance as it has resulted in a paralysis in decision-making and a general hollowing out of the state. Lebanon’s confessional system has also proven extremely vulnerable to external influence, which has bred and exacerbated local conflict and violence.
In view of addressing gender-based violence (GBV) holistically, in 2009, UNRWA adopted a multisectoral approach informed by the Inter-Agency Standing Committee (IASC) Guidelines for GBV Interventions in Humanitarian Settings. Work on addressing GBV has focused on the building of referral systems in the five fields of UNRWA operations, including training staff, ensuring that survivors have access to internal as well as external services, and awareness-raising at the community level.
In the refugee camps in Jordan and Iraq, 3RP WASH partners continued to carry out considerable work to reduce costs through transition from emergency mechanisms to more cost-effective service delivery.
In Iraq, the total shelter capacity of the ten refugee camps is 19,120 shelter units. Of these, 16,003 (83 per cent) were improved (provided with a concrete slab, kitchen, family latrine, and shower) of which 14,540 are occupied. Around 69,000 refugees are now benefiting from improved shelters in the camps. A total of 2,046 new shelter units have been constructed during 2015.
In December, the Ministry of Education (MOE) in Jordan confirmed that 145,458 Syrian students had access to formal education in schools in camp and host community settings for the 2015/2016 academic year. For the first time, this data was compiled and analysed through the Education Management Information System (EMIS), which 3RP partners supported through the provision of laptops in the camp schools.
In Turkey, the food security sector continues to provide support to Syrian refugees in eleven camps, with monthly transfers to beneficiaries amounting to USD 3 million. In December, 3RP partners reached approximately 264,448 beneficiaries, bringing the total number of persons receiving food assistance to 774,914 and exceeding the planned end-of-year target by 25 per cent.
These dashboards reflect the humanitarian and resilience responses of more than 200 partners, including governments, UN Agencies, and NGOs, involved in the 3RP response in Egypt, Iraq, Jordan, Lebanon and Turkey. Achievements are cumulative from the start of 2015, while targets are based on full funding of the 3RP and an expected 4.27 million refugees by end-2015.
