Statement by UNDP Administrator on Earthquakes in Syria and Türkiye
February 6, 2023
We are deeply saddened by the loss of life and suffering following the devastating earthquakes in Syria and Türkiye.
As part of the United Nations family, the UN Development Programme (UNDP) stands ready to support affected people in the coming days, weeks and months as they recover from this tragedy.
In addition to the urgent humanitarian needs, it is clear from the magnitude of the disaster and the vulnerability of the people affected that recovery will be long and difficult.
UNDP will work alongside our humanitarian partners and coordinate with the UN Country teams to ensure affected people are supported in this process.
