Progress on addressing the Syria crisis since the London Conference.
On 4th February 2016 the UK, Norway, Germany, Kuwait and the UN co-hosted the ‘Supporting Syria and the Region’ conference (henceforth ‘London Conference’), taking a positive and innovative step towards a comprehensive plan to address the greatest humanitarian crisis of our time. Donors and governments made significant funding and policy pledges.
The first official check point on progress against these commitments comes at the World Humanitarian Summit (WHS) on 23rd-24th May 2016. Whilst acknowledging only three months have passed, this report aims to shine a light on progress so far and hold donors and governments accountable for both their financial and policy related promises.
