In 2019, UNRWA requires US$ 277 million for its humanitarian response to the Syria crisis. This response will be guided by the following three strategic priorities:
Strategic Priority 1: To preserve resilience through the provision of humanitarian assistance ensuring that the most vulnerable Palestine refugees meet their basic needs.
Strategic Priority 2: To contribute to a protective environment for Palestine refugees by maintaining access to basic services including education; health; water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH), and livelihoods; and protection.
Strategic Priority 3: To improve the effectiveness and efficiency of emergency programme delivery through
strengthened humanitarian capacity, coordination and management.
Activities described in this appeal are consistent with the priorities and interventions of the Humanitarian Country Team (HCT) in Syria, the Lebanon Crisis Response Plan (LCRP), and the Regional Refugee and Resilience Plan (3RP) for 2019-2020. They will be complemented by ongoing operations supported by the Agency’s Programme Budget, particularly in the areas of education and health.
