Local early recovery & resilience-building: meeting needs more sustainably, supporting people’s dignity, and better managing risks across Syria

10/03/2021 - 10:31

The event will feature the UK’s Minister for the Middle East and North Africa alongside senior UN and Syrian voices showcasing the impact of early recovery interventions on improved food security, reduced harmful coping behaviours, and strengthened social and economic resilience for the most vulnerable.

Syrian perspectives will highlight the challenges and opportunities for women in particular, and point to some of the priorities that future early recovery programming should take forward.

Donor, institutional, and practitioner interventions will outline the value of early recovery to the international humanitarian response in present day Syria, provide concrete examples (including through a short film), and directly address how the range of risks associated with early recovery can be effectively managed across the whole of Syria. Speakers include:

  • James Cleverly, UK Minister of State
  • Imran Riza, UN Resident Coordinator and Humanitarian Coordinator, Syria
  • Jonathan Hargreaves, UK Special Representative for Syria, Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office
  • Women beneficiaries from livelihoods intervention (pre-recorded video)
  • Mike Robson, Country Representative, the Food and Agriculture Organization, Syria Office (including a short film)
  • Syrian civil society and thought leader on priorities for early recovery and the role of women

The event will be livestreamed on @UKforSyria’s Facebook page.
