While providing emergency humanitarian relief alone in the protracted crisis is not sustainable, more sustainable approaches are needed not only to improve the lives and livelihoods of the affected people but also to sustain human capacity and vital institutions in Syria.
Resilience building through empowering the crisis-affected population is proven to be effective in helping them withstand the negative shocks of the crisis. Capacity development – in its various forms and types - will equip affected people and institutions with adequate skills needed at the crisis and post crisis times.
In 2017, with the support of the Government of Japan, six United Nations agencies came together to respond to this situation. The “Training for ALL” projects, implemented by UNDP, UN Habitat, FAO, UNFPA, WHO and UNIDO, aim to maintain and improve Syrian human capital in various fields by providing multi-sectoral training opportunities to keep up and upgrade the skills and knowledge of Syrian women and men, enabling them to more effectively respond to the pressing needs of the affected population and to ensure preparedness for future recovery.
