Turkey Cross-border

The Whole of Syria approach brings together humanitarian actors working from inside Syria and neighbouring countries aiming at increasing the effectiveness of the response. The coordination system for Turkey-based agencies has been established since 2013 and currently consists of the Humanitarian Liaison Group (HLG akin to a Humanitarian Country Team), Inter-Cluster Coordination Group (ICCG), Clusters and other coordination forums. The cross-border assistance from Turkey into Syria is provided by the United Nations and a large number of international, Syrian and Turkish NGOs.
