Regional Refugeee and Resilience Plan 2015 - 2017 Regional Strategic Overview

December 14, 2014

The Regional Refugee and Resilience Plan (3RP) brings together the plans developed under the leadership of national authorities - namely, the Arab Republic of Egypt, the Republic of Iraq, the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan, the Lebanese Republic, and the Republic of Turkey – to ensure protection, humanitarian assistance and strengthen resilience.

The 3RP embraces the notion that the needs and priorities of vulnerable populations, refugees and members of impacted communities alike, must be central to the response Building upon the success of the current and previous Regional Response Plans (RRP), the 3RP will continue to ensure protection and humanitarian assistance for refugees and other vulnerable communities. This means working together so that refugees have access to asylum and international protection, that they can meet their basic needs in safety and dignity, that those with specific needs and vulnerabilities receive specialized services and support.

The 2017-20183RP brings together more than 240 partners in a coordinated region-wide response to the Syria crisis. In 2017, the 3RP appeal is USD 4.63 billion for the programmatic response of United Nations agencies, inter-governmental organizations (IGOs), and non-governmental organizations (NGOs).

The progress report highlights the achievements made during first seven months of 2017 by 3RP partners. In terms of funding received, 49% (or US$2.28 billion) of total agency appeal (US$4.63 billion) were funded as of 11 October 2017. When it is broken down by components, the refugee component received 56% (or US$1.53 billion) of requested funding and the refugee component is funded at 39% (or US$751 million). The funding received for the resilience component has already surpassed last year’s resilience funding level of US$617 million.

In terms of livelihoods and Social cohesion sector achievements, approximately 17,000 refugees and host community members were supported with short-term and long-term employment (including cash for work and seasonal labour) and approximately 65,000 refugees and host community members were provided with skills training (job training, internships, job placement and language courses) to increase employability. For the social cohesion activities, over 36,000 people have participated in social cohesion initiatives in the region.
