Syria Crisis - The Regional Impact

1,257 views 1 month ago
Since the beginning of the Syrian conflict in 2011, millions of people have fled the bloodshed into neighboring countries.
The crisis has seen the largest movement of refugees since World War 2.

Jordan and Lebanon have shouldered the brunt of the exodus. In both countries, the majority of refugees are not in formal camps, but live in local communities in the poorest of areas.

With the generous support of donors, the United Nations Development Programme is working with partners to help alleviate the pressure. UNDP supported programmes are also addressing unemployment in host communities as well as helping Syrian refugees.

With no peaceful resolution in sight, continued support to host countries is crucial. Show less

UNDP Goodwill Ambassadors Play

UNDP Goodwill Ambassadors make a difference by bringing attention to the most challenging development issues the world is facing today.

Energy and Environment Play

Energy and Environment are essential for sustainable development. The poor are disproportionately affected by environmental degradation and lack of access to clean, affordable energy services. These issues are also global as climate change, loss of biodiversity and ozone layer depletion cannot be addressed by countries acting alone. UNDP helps countries strengthen their capacity to address these challenges at global, national and community levels, seeking out and sharing best practices, providing innovative policy advice and linking partners through pilot projects that help poor people build sustainable livelihoods.

Arab States Play

The Regional Bureau for Arab States (RBAS) serves as the headquarters for UNDP regional programmes and country offices in 17 Arab countries, with the 18th located in the occupied Palestinian territory.

Asia and the Pacific Play

UNDP's Regional Bureau for Asia and the Pacific (RBAP) helps countries build and share their own solutions to urgent development challenges, supporting coalitions for change and connecting individuals and institutions so they can share knowledge, experience and resources. As countries develop local capacity, they draw on the people of UNDP and our wide range of regional and global partners.

Crisis Prevention and Recovery Play

UNDP helps countries prevent and recover from armed conflicts and natural disasters through advocacy, capacity building, conflict sensitive development, development of tools and methodologies, gender equality, knowledge networking, strategic planning and programming, and policy and standard setting.

UNDP Administrator: Helen Clark Play

Helen Clark has been a member of the New Zealand Parliament since 1981, and was Prime Minister of New Zealand from 1999 to 2008. She began her work as the new Administrator of UNDP on 20 April, 2009.
