Overview on UNHCR’s operations in the Middle East and North Africa
A. Situational context including new developments
Syria is home to four million of the world’s 1.8 billion young people. Syria’s youth population is on the rise and is estimated to surpass four million soon.
The masses of young people represent a huge opportunity for our country. Yet, in countries like Syria, where a crisis has been going on for years and has substantially destroyed infrastructure, young people face tremendous challenges. Crisis has left behind a cracked education system, hunger and displacement, mountains of lost opportunities, and the list goes on.
But $1.5 billion of pledges have still to come in - and more than 500,000 refugee children in Turkey, Lebanon and Jordan are not yet getting an education.
International donors have delivered almost three-quarters of the money pledged for 2017 to help millions of Syrians forced out of their homes by the ongoing conflict - including getting children into school.
