The Syrian refugee crisis has been one of the largest humanitarian crises, as 13.4 million people are in need of humanitarian and protection assistance in Syria. Moreover, 6.7 million Syrians are internally displaced, and among the 6.6 million Syrian refugees worldwide, 5.6 million are currently living in nearby countries. This hardship has been compounded by the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic and widespread food insecurity. Now more than ever, support from the international community is needed to meet life-saving humanitarian goals.
This seminar serves as a collaborative platform for sharing best practices and exploring sustainable support for Syrian refugees from various perspectives and stakeholders. Panelists will share how to better tackle this acute humanitarian crisis through effective delivery of support, and including establishing a functioning public -private partnership and fostering community cohesion and stability at a local level.
