In Response to the Syria Crisis

Regional Refugee
& Resilience Plan


The Syria Crisis remains the largest displacement crisis in the world, with over 5.6 million registered refugees and over six million people displaced within Syria.

The 3RP offers a strategic, coordination, planning, advocacy, and programming platform for humanitarian and development partners to respond to the Syria crisis at the regional level and in host countries.

It comprises one regional plan, with five standalone country chapters covering Turkey, Lebanon, Jordan, Egypt and Iraq. While strategy, planning and programming are country-led processes, regional coherence is pursued to ensure consistency in response planning and implementation, to promote common tools, standards and innovation, and to enhance advocacy efforts at global and regional levels.

Eight regional strategic directions provide the high-level parameters for the response. Taken together, the strategic directions are designed to collectively enhance the protection of vulnerable persons affected by the crisis, create the conditions and opportunities for dignified lives, build the resilience of refugees and host communities, and strengthen the capacities of national authorities and responders.

The foundation of the 3RP response model remains strong national leadership, with national actors as the principal responders, supported by UN Agencies, international and national NGOs, and other partners. It is for this reason that the 3RP is made up of five country chapters, which are nationally-led in design and implementation.

Strong National Leadership
Strategic Direction

3RP partners advocate for access to territory and freedom of movement, allowing for Syrian refugees to reach safety and to be re-united with family members already in host countries. Many refugee households are contending with increasing socioeconomic vulnerabilities and resort to negative coping mechanisms, exacerbating the risks of sexual and gender-based violence and child labour, among others.

Regional Protection Framework
Strategic Direction

Resilience is defined as the ability of individuals, households, communities and institutions to anticipate, withstand, recover and transform from shocks and crises, natural or man-made. A resilience-based response to a protracted crisis demands that stakeholders do things differently, including for humanitarian and development agencies to work together within an integrated response.

Strengthening and Deepening the Resilience Approach
Strategic Direction

3RP partners remain focused on creating economic opportunities for Syrian refugees and host communities in the region, building on the commitments first made by Governments and donors – at scale – at the London conference in 2016 and reiterated at the Brussels II conference in April 2018.

Enhancing Economic Opportunities
Strategic Direction

The No Lost Generation (NLG) initiative is a commitment to action that brings together key partners, including humanitarians, donors and policy-makers to achieve agreed outcomes essential for the education, protection, wellbeing and future of children and young people affected by the Syria and Iraq crises.

No Lost Generation
Strategic Direction

The 3RP response model is built on partnership at every level: local, sub-national, national and regional. Over 270 partners contributed to developing the 2019-2020 response. This includes those appealing directly in the 3RP, including national actors, United Nations agencies, international NGOs and national NGOs, as well as those indirectly as implementing partners.

Continued Outreach and Partnerships
Strategic Direction

Accountability remains a cornerstone of the 3RP, with partners seeking to empower refugees to seek access to quality and effective interventions. Partners in the 3RP remain committed to ensuring their approach reflects the Core Humanitarian Standards on Quality and Accountability, including those commitments related to preparedness, resilience, and risk-reduction.

Enhanced Accountability Mechanisms
Strategic Direction

Refugees continue to require access to territory, international protection, and humanitarian support in countries of asylum. At the same time, given the protracted nature of the crisis, opportunities for durable solutions are urgently needed so refugees can look to the future with hope and dignity.
