Participatory Community Recovery Plan: Hama

December 17, 2023

The Participatory community plan for the neighbourhoods of Al-Madinah, Al-Bashoura, Al-Baroudiyah, Al-Shah­baa, and Al-Faihaa in the City Centre of Hama describes the comprehensive and holistic approach to recovery that UNDP Syria is pursuing as part of its early recovery and resilience-building assistance to the people of Syria. 

From May 2021 to June 2022, the Governorate and City Council of Hama, together with a diverse group of community members, international organ­izations, local NGOs, FBOs, private sector and other key stakeholders joined efforts, with the technical support of UNDP, in a community-led, bottom-up process to develop a Participatory Community Recovery Plan for 2022- 2025. The uniqueness of this innovative, participatory process lies in its inclusivity as it involves representatives of various community individuals and groups particularly women, youth, elderly, PwDs, and IDPs who actively contributed to building robust and sustainable social cohesion among the different stakeholders and fostered resilience of their neighbourhoods. This was done through the development and implementation of crea­tive community-led economic, basic services, institutional responsive, and community organization recovery initiatives.
