Evaluation of UNDP Support to the Syrian Refugee Crisis Response and Promoting an Integrated Resilience Approach
The evaluation covered Syrian refugee crisis-response programmes in Turkey, Lebanon, Jordan, Iraq and Egypt for the period 2015-2019. The evaluation assessed the coordination structure of the Regional Refugee Response Plan (3RP) and key streams of the UNDP country-level response. UNDP supported national and local governments in countries hosting refugees to address the development impacts of the crisis. UNDP helped bring a development approach to humanitarian refugee respons, thus contributing to consolidation of the humanitarian-development nexus.
The UNDP contribution has been important in transforming the international discourse on protracted refugee crises by adding a development and resilience approach to humanitarian response. Building on its substantive engagement in the 3RP, UNDP is well positioned to provide thought leadership in promoting practical approaches to the humanitarian-development-peace nexus at the country level. There is scope for UNDP to play a catalytic role in enabling private sector-based solutions to promote the resilience of both host communities and refugees.
