Concern Worldwide’s analysis of funding trends to the major coordinated humanitarian response instruments reveals worrying facts:
- The response inside Syria and the region remains woefully underfunded
- Donors’ commitments are not being honoured
- Donor countries have not effectively adapted their funding approaches to respond to the protracted crisis
It also reveals that the key sectors of response under discussion by governments at the London conference, education, livelihoods and protection, are the least well-funded. The results are increased levels of poverty, further displacement, increasing social tensions and the risk of a ‘lost generation’ of children. The stark reality is that Syrians’ needs are not being met and that millions live in daily fear of what their future holds.
