The EU and the UN will co-chair the third conference on 'Supporting the future of Syria and the region', which will take place in Brussels on 12-14 March 2019.
The overarching objective of the three Syria Conferences has always been to support the Syrian people and further mobilise the international community behind the work to achieve a lasting political solution to the Syria crisis, in line with UN Security Council Resolution 2254.
As with the two previous editions, Brussels III will also address the most critical humanitarian and resilience issues affecting Syrians and communities hosting Syrian refugees, both inside the country and in the region. It will also reaffirm the international community’s political and financial support for Syria’s neighbours, notably Lebanon, Jordan, and Turkey, as well as Egypt and Iraq. Brussels III will be the main pledging event for Syria and the region in 2019.
The Conference will provide even greater space than previous editions for Syrian, regional and international NGOs and civil society organisations, as well as women’s networks.
