As the recent upsurge in violence highlights, the conflict in Syria continues to spell a massive political, humanitarian and development crisis across an entire region, with no end in sight.
Syria continues to experience destruction to almost every aspect of life and livelihoods, including massive devastation of homes, businesses, basic services and infrastructure.
Sixty-nine percent of Syrians inside the country live in extreme poverty and 13.1 million people there require humanitarian assistance.

As we discussed in this morning’s parallel session on the region, the Syria crisis continues to have a devastating effect on civilians inside the country, beyond its borders and across generations.
As prepared for delivery.
I would like to acknowledge the Member States in attendance, the Emergency Relief Coordinator, the High Commissioner for Refugees, and all colleagues participating in Geneva this afternoon on this critical issue concerning the Syrian people and the UN-coordinated crisis response.
All too often, young people in the Arab states are portrayed as universally, perpetually in despair. While indeed many Arab countries are in a state of turmoil, the truth is that young people across the region are finding ways to keep their societies moving forward.

UN AND PARTNERS LAUNCH PLAN TO SUPPORT OVER FIVE MILLION SYRIAN REFUGEES AND COUNTRIES HOSTING THEM
December 12, 2017
AMMAN / GENEVA - United Nations Agencies and NGO partners today released the 2018 Regional Refugee and Resilience Plan (3RP), a USD 4.4 billion plan designed to support over five million refugees from Syria and the vulnerable communities hosting them in neighbouring countries.
With the crisis in Syria now into its seventh year, the situation inside Syria and for refugees and host communities in the surrounding countries continues to be critical. Inside Syria poverty rates are estimated at over 84 per cent, while refugees have grown increasingly vulnerable with the vast majority living below the poverty line and struggling to afford essentials such as food, adequate housing and health care.
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.
These dashboards reflect the humanitarian and resilience responses of more than 200 partners, including governments, UN Agenc ies, and NGOs, involved in the 3RP response in Egypt, Iraq, Jordan, Lebanon and Turkey. Achievements are cumulative from the start of 2016, while targets are based on full funding of the 3RP and an expected 4.69 million refugees by end-2016.

The Syria Crisis is the largest political, humanitarian and development challenge of our time.
It has taken enormous casualties, caused widespread destruction, forced massive displacement, rolled back development progress and threatened generations across Syria and neighbouring countries. It has also challenged the international community to think – and act – differently in our collective response.
2015 - Le PNUD : oeuvrer pour les peuples et la planète
Dans toutes les régions du monde, des voix s’élèvent pour demander un leadership et des mesures en 2015 pour lutter contre la pauvreté, l’inégalité et le changement climatique.
Voices around the world are demanding leadership and action in 2015 on poverty, inequality and climate change. These universal challenges demand global action, and this year presents unprecedented opportunities for achieving the future we want. This is the year when world leaders come together to adopt a new agenda for sustainable development. The new global Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) will guide policy and funding for the next 15 years, beginning with a historic pledge to end poverty.
The majority of Syrian refugees in Jordan have settled in cities, towns, and villages in the northern governorates outside the refugee camps. As a result, one preoccupying challenge to the municipalities is providing adequate support for host communities whose services, resources, and infrastructure have been strained by the sudden and enormous influx of the refugees, with sometimes destabilising effects on their own livelihoods and natural environments.
The Regional Refugee and Resilience Plan (3RP) brings together the plans developed under the leadership of national authorities - namely, the Arab Republic of Egypt, the Republic of Iraq, the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan, the Lebanese Republic, and the Republic of Turkey – to ensure protection, humanitarian assistance and strengthen resilience.
