Humanitarian Response Plan, 2017, Syria


In support of national and local efforts, the humanitarian community will strive to contribute to the achievement of three key objectives in the 2017 Humanitarian Response Plan: i) save lives and alleviate the suffering of the most vulnerable people; ii) enhance the prevention, mitigation and response to protection needs; and iii) increase resilience, livelihoods and access to basic services. 

  • 1 Save Lives Provide life-saving humanitarian assistance to the most vulnerable people, with emphasis on those in areas with high severity of needs, including UN-declared besieged and hard-to-reach areas
  • 2 Ensure Protection Enhance the prevention and mitigation of protection risks, and respond to protection needs through supporting the protective environment in Syria, by promoting international law, IHL, HRL and through quality, principled assistance
  • 3 Increase resilience and access to services Increase resilience and livelihood opportunities and affected people’s access to basic service, especially among the most vulnerable households and communities
