Third International Humanitarian Pledging Conference for Syria

In Support of the Syria Response Plan (SRP) and the Regional Refugee and Resilience Plan (3RP)

31 March: As the Syrian conflict enters its fifth year with no political solution in sight, 12.2 million people remain in dire need of assistance. Nearly half of all Syrians have been forced from their homes – 3.8 million people have fled to Lebanon, Jordan, Turkey, Iraq and Egypt, and 7.6 million people have been internally displaced – making this the largest displacement crisis in the world.

The Third Pledging Conference - which took place in Kuwait City - aimed to raise the funds required to meet the needs set out in the 2015 Syria Response Plan and the Regional Refugee and Resilience Plan (3RP) 2015-2016.

In an expression of continued solidarity with the millions of children, women and men affected by the devastating crisis in Syria, international donors pledged US$3.8 billion. “Today, the international community has come together in solidarity with the people of Syria and neighbouring countries bearing the heavy burden of hosting millions of Syrian refugees,” said United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon, who chaired the conference. “We have sought to send a message of relief to the millions of Syrians who have been affected by this terrible crisis.”

In the Secretary-General's words, "this is yet another example of the vital, life-saving leadership that Kuwait has [shown] to help those in dire need around the world. The people of Kuwait should be very proud of that compassionate example that the Amir of Kuwait has set for other countries and for the enormous good that Kuwait has done for Syrians who are suffering through no fault of their own."
