2020 Syria Humanitarian Response Plan

The 2020 Humanitarian Response Plan (HRP) sets out the framework within which the humanitarian community will respond to the large-scale humanitarian and protection needs in Syria throughout 2020, on the basis of the prioritization undertaken across and within sectors. The HRP, based on United Nations’ (UN) assessments and analysis, presents urgent funding requirements to address these needs. It is anchored by three strategic objectives: saving lives and alleviating suffering, enhancing protection, and increasing resilience. As these objectives are interlinked and often inter-dependent, achieving positive outcomes for affected people requires concerted action across all three. Protection and early recovery are mainstreamed across the HRP framework, adding coherence to the humanitarian response. Progress made towards attaining one objective is often dependent upon incremental steps towards achieving another. Achieving these objectives is contingent upon the availability of sufficient resources and the existence of an enabling operational environment. Humanitarian activities under the HRP are coordinated at the field level and benefit from an overarching effort to harmonize assistance across response areas.
