The Syria crisis will enter its twelfth year in 2023 and remains one of the largest refugee crises in the world. Whilst forcibly displaced Syrians are found in over 125 countries, more than 6.8 million Syrian refugees fled to the five neighbouring countries – Türkiye, Lebanon, Jordan, Iraq and Egypt. Over 47% are children and some 48% of refugees within the region are female.
The needs are higher than ever since the start of the crisis. The COVID-19 pandemic, the war in Ukraine, climate change, as well as political and economic challenges have increased the needs and vulnerabilities of refugees, host communities and host governments.
In 2023, the 3RP seeks USD 5.7 billion to reach 6.8 million Syrian refugees and 6.1 million affected host community members with assistance. Furthermore, the 3RP will continue to support and complement the host governments’ ongoing efforts to address the needs of affected populations and strengthen public institutions to provide access to quality basic services.
