DIPLOMATIC EFFORTS
PAVING THE WAY TO A PEACEFUL SOLUTION TO THE CONFLICT
The EU stands with the Syrian people. It has suspended all cooperation with the Syrian regime following the start of the conflict in 2011 and is working to support a genuine political transition. The EU has not forgotten vulnerable Syrians and continues to directly support to the Syrian population inside Syria.
• Support for a UN-facilitated Syrian-led and Syrian-owned political solution to the conflict
• Support for the prosecution of persons responsible for crimes under International Law
• Justice for the families of the missing and the detained
• No EU funding for reconstruction without an inclusive Syrian-led political settlement

Over €920 million HUMANITARIAN ASSISTANCE
The EU responds to the most urgent life-saving needs with:
• Emergency health services, including trauma aid and child health
• Access to safe drinking water, sanitation and food
• Protection of vulnerable groups, including women and children
• Education in emergencies
• Demining and risk awareness projects

€434 million STABILISATION & LONGER-TERM ASSISTANCE
The EU creates perspectives for Syrians and paves the way towards sustainable peace:
• Livelihoods support and youth empowerment
• Support to civil society, human rights defenders, transitional justice, accountability and community dialogue
• Agriculture and food security
• Demining including mine risk education
