The 3RP
MODEL

The 3RP is a strategic, coordination, planning, advocacy, fundraising, and programming platform for humanitarian and development partners to respond to the Syria crisis. It comprises one regional plan, with five standalone country chapters covering Turkey, Lebanon, Jordan, Iraq, and Egypt.

The 3RP has two interconnected components. The refugee component addresses the protection and humanitarian assistance needs of refugees while the resilience component addresses the resilience, stabilization and development needs of impacted individuals, communities and institutions, aiming to strengthen the capacities of national actors.

The 3RP continues to explore synergies between humanitarian and development processes, including with ongoing current global processes, such as the Global Compact on Refugees and the UN 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

STRATEGIC
DIRECTIONS

In support of host countries in the region, 3RP partners will seek to contribute to the achievement of four regional strategic directions for the benefit of refugees and host communities. Through all efforts, 3RP partners will seek to promote resilience for all, guided by the principle that ‘no one is left behind’.

The Resilience Approach remains central to the regional and host country-level responses to the Syria crisis. 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. The Resilience Approach calls upon all actors on the ground to think and work together in a synergetic manner to build these capacities.

The 3RP places protection of people at the center of its planning, design, implementation and monitoring of its interventions to ensure that no one is left behind. This approach informs advocacy and support for access to protection, protection from refoulement, registration, strengthening of the protection space, protection from violence and exploitation, case processing, facilitation of referrals and identification of possible solutions.

1. PROTECTING PEOPLE
Strategic Direction

Refugees continue to require access to territory, international protection, and support in countries of asylum. 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.

2. SUPPORTING DURABLE SOLUTIONS
Strategic Direction

Enhancing local and national capacities across the region is one of priorities of the 3RP—broadening the capacity of institutions and systems to provide protection and essential socio-economic services; fostering the conditions for durable solutions; and increasing opportunities for impacted communities to realize dignified lives. In that way, this strategic direction is both an end in and of itself as well as inextricably linked to the other strategic directions.

3. Enhancing local & national capacities
Strategic Direction

The crisis continues to impact protection and socio-economic well-being of vulnerable persons due to a range of factors. Addressing the multiple deprivations facing refugees and vulnerable host populations and supporting enabling conditions and opportunities for all to lead a dignified life is a priority for all 3RP partners across a range of sectors, including protection, agriculture, food security, basic needs, health, education, shelter, WASH and social cohesion and livelihoods. 

4. CONTRIBUTING TO DIGNIFIED LIVES
