ENG

Virtual Press Conference / Conférence de presse virtuelle

UNHCR / UNDP

Subject:

Ahead of the Brussels V Conference "Supporting the future of Syria and the region" on 29 and 30 March, the UN High Commissioner for Refugees Filippo Grandi and the UNDP Administrator Achim Steiner will review the status of the critical Regional Refugee and Resilience Plan (3RP) for Syrian refugees and hosting countries.

The Syria refugee crisis remains one of the largest humanitarian and development crises in the world. Across the five main Syrian-refugee hosting countries included in the 3RP – Turkey, Lebanon, Jordan, Iraq and Egypt – over 10 million people need some form of humanitarian and resilience support in 2021. This includes some 5.5 million Syrian refugees and 4.8 million people impacted in host communities, which is the highest number of people in need of some form of assistance in this now decade-long crisis.

 

Speakers:  

  • Filippo Grandi, UN High Commissioner for Refugees
  • Achim Steiner, UNDP Administrator
