    Syrian Arab Republic: Earthquake response and recovery plan, 2023–2026 2023
    Also available in:
    No results found.

    The earthquakes that struck the Syrian Arab Republic on 6 February 2023 caused major damages and losses, affecting both urban and rural areas. For example, buildings collapsed in the main built-up areas; crops, livestock, food stocks and essential agricultural inputs were lost; and irrigation systems and farms were damaged, along with markets and infrastructure. As a result, food consumption gaps have grown further among the most vulnerable people. Given the already dire situation in the Syrian Arab Republic, after 12 years of conflict and crisis, there is an urgent need to address the suffering and uncertainty of the affected communities. In response, the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations is proposing a three-year Earthquake response and recovery plan (ERRP), seeking USD 45 million to deliver both immediate and longer-term support to severely affected rural communities in the governorates of Aleppo, Hama, Idleb, Latakia and Tartous. Through the ERRP, FAO envisages that affected farming families will save and sustain their livelihoods, build self-reliance, and improve their resilience, ultimately reducing the humanitarian caseload. This document serves as a roadmap for the ERRP and as a resource mobilization tool, presenting the rationale, the expected impact, outcomes and outputs of the ERRP as well as the funding requirements.

    On 6 February 2023, two powerful earthquakes struck the southeastern region of Türkiye. The earthquake-affected area, known as Türkiye’s “fertile crescent”, accounted for approximately 15.3 percent of the country’s agricultural gross domestic product and employed 14 percent of its farmers. The significant damages and losses to crops, livestock, fisheries and agricultural infrastructure were estimated at USD 6.3 billion. In response, the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) scaled up its emergency response and launched its three-year Earthquake Response and Recovery Plan (ERRP) with the overall objective of maintaining food production and availability through the restoration of critical agrifood systems and rural livelihoods. This document provides an overview of FAO's response under the ERRP during February–December 2023 as well as planned response until June 2024. It also highlights FAO’s funding requirements to fully implement the ERRP.
