October 30, 2022
Damascus 30 October 2022_The Government of Italy has approved a contribution of 2 million Euros to the UN Joint Programme on Urban and Rural Resilience aimed at improving more inclusive access to livelihoods and to critical basic services in conflict-affected areas of Syria.
“Italy has been supporting an area-based, integrated approach which responds to the needs of the population in a multi-sectoral way, thereby creating synergies and more sustainable impact on the lives of the people. In a protracted crisis such as the Syrian one, it is crucial to broaden the approach and to include the early recovery perspective as mainstreamed in all sectors of interventions - from food security and livelihood to reproductive health, while promoting the protection of women and girls. Italy is therefore pleased to contribute to the UN Joint Programme, which is in line with our approach and strategy” said Mr. Massimiliano D’Antuono, Chargé d’Affaires of the Italian Embassy for Syria.
