Strengthening Municipal Resilience in Response to the Impact of the Syria Crisis in Turkey
The “Strengthening Municipal Resilience in Response to the Impact of the Syria Crisis in Turkey” report presents how municipalities are the first port of call for the support provided to Syrian refugees and Turkish host communities. In order to support municipalities to respond to the increase in demand for services at the local level throughout Turkey, 3RP partners have significantly increased their investments in municipal capacities and services. USD 53 million of support has been provided to municipalities since 2014 benefitting over 60 municipalities. The report shows how the funding mobilized by partners has rapidly increased and how the range of support provided is expanding to enable municipalities to cope with the immediate impact of the crisis while also safeguarding development gains.
