3RP Regional Progress Report
The Regional Refugee and Resilience Plan (3RP) in response to the Syria Crisis is an international appeal aimed at addressing refugee protection needs, the humanitarian needs of the most vulnerable, and the longer-term socio-economic impacts of the Syria crisis on neighbouring countries of Turkey, Lebanon, Jordan, Iraq and Egypt.
The 3RP is a USD 5.5 billion funding appeal, comprising USD 1 billion of host government requirements and USD 4.5 billion for programmes implemented by United Nations agencies and non-governmental organizations (NGOs). The appeal is planned on a scenario of 4.27 million Syrian refugees in the region by the end of 2015, and aims to assist more than 20 million other members of impacted local communities this year.
A shortage of funds is hampering humanitarian and development assistance efforts to meet the needs of 3.9 million refugees who have fled the conflict in Syria, as well as more than 20 million people in affected local communities hosting them in neighbouring countries, according to the progress report.
- Should the 3RP partners’ call for action remain unheard, the consequences would be severe, leaving a generation of Syrians behind and neighbouring countries striving to provide a global public good they should not and cannot bear alone.
- Consequences of underfunding of the 3RP across the region would include:
- 1.6 million people across the region will have further cuts to their food assistance.
- Up to 1.7 million people may face winter this year without fuel, shelter, insulation, blankets or warm clothes.
- 752,000 Syrian refugee children will continue to not participate in education
- 130,000 extremely or severely needy families will not be supported with cash assistance for basic needs.
- Increases in morbidity and mortality, especially among children under five, women, and refugees with acute and chronic health conditions.
- 70,000 pregnant refugee women could face life-threatening complications, if timely emergency health care is not provided.
