Syria V Brussels Conference
The Syria V Brussels Conference, took place on the 29 and 30 March has ended with a cumulative total pledge of EUR 5.3 billion for 2021 and beyond (excluding the loans provided by the European Investment Bank, World Bank, governments etc). As donors fall short of the UN aid pledge goal of EUR 8.5 billion needed to respond to an increasingly food insecure population, the economic fallout across the region and the global health crisis affecting those at risk, the most. WVSR has been driving the advocacy efforts together with UNICEF as co-chairs of the No Lost Generation Initiative, to foster the debate on the impact of a decade of conflict on Syrian displaced children and what the international community, gathered for the Conference, should do to provide a future for them. The event “What is next for Syria’s children?” focused on the Syrian young people’s voices across the Middle East region as well as other distinguished officials from IrishAid, BMZ, European Commission, UNICEF and World Vision. Additionally, child protection and education have been prominently addressed in the United Nations and European Unions’ joint consultation report ahead of the March Conference and in the Co-chairs Statement issued in the aftermath of Syria V Brussels Conference.
