    The Syrian Refugee Resilience Plan (SRRP) is the guiding document for the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) to support the Government of Turkey in addressing the needs of Syrian refugees in Turkey. The SRRP describes FAO’s strategy to (i) address food insecurity and malnutrition of vulnerable Syrian refugee and host community members by promoting good practices and evidence-based decisions on food security and nutrition; (ii) Increase the resilience of households, communities and institutions to effectively prevent and cope with crisis by providing viable livelihood opportunities in agriculture; (iii) promote sustainable management and utilization of natural resources, including land, water, climate and genetic resources for the benefit of Syrian refugees and host communities; and (iv) harness the impact of Syrian refugees for the local economic development, and to foster their integration and social cohesion. The main objective of the SRRP is to enhance the resilience of more than 60 000 households (approximately 300 000 people) from Syrian refugee and host communities in Turkey affected by the Syrian crisis. The implementation of the 2019–2020 SRRP will require a budget of USD 106 million. The SRRP covers the provinces in Turkey which have the highest concentration of Syrian refugees and where there is potential for their integration into the local economy.

    The Syrian Arab Republic | Regional Refugee Response Plan 2020-2021 2020

    The conflict in the Syrian Arab Republic continues to drive the largest refugee crisis in the world. In addition to violence, people face widespread unemployment, lack of formal livelihood opportunities and natural resources degradation that undermine food security. Consequently, millions of Syrians have fled their homes, with the majority seeking refuge in neighbouring Egypt, Iraq, Jordan, Lebanon and Turkey. Despite the generosity of host countries, local communities and Syrian refugees continue to face high levels of economic insecurity, unemployment and vulnerability. Establishing and safeguarding the resilience of host communities and refugees calls for a concerted, consistent, conflict-sensitive approach, building national and regional capacities to protect the lives, livelihoods and food security of the most vulnerable across the region.

    The Syrian Refugee Reslience Plan (SRRP) 2018-2019 is the guiding instrument for the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) to address the impact of the Syrian refugee crisis in Turkey. The SRRP enables FAO to provide a strategic response to the food security needs within the refugee communities and to facilitate, through sustainable livelihood-oriented approaches, the positive synergies that can support both Syrian refugees and host communities. The SRRP is structured around three pillars and designed as an integrated approach: Pillar 1 – Food Security: Increase food security and nutrition through small-scale agricultural production and promote good nutrition Pillar 2 – Livelihoods: Enhance rural livelihoods through vocational skills training to increase access to the local labour market and establish private sector partnerships to fill labour gaps Pillar 3 – Coordination: Increase capacity and coordination among Regional Refugee and Response Plan (3RP) partners in the design, implementation and reporting of programmes
