Important progress has been made on the resilience agenda in the response to the Syria Crisis since the launching of the Resilience-based Development approach in 2013. In this framework, a substantial amount of resilience-based initiatives has been implemented in the Regional Refugee and Resilience Plan (3RP), in both the “refugee” and the “resilience” components.
Throughout the past two years, valuable lessons about what resilience-based programming means in practice are being learned, and creative approaches with wide-ranging impact are being identified for scaling up.
This session will address the findings of the 2016 “State of Resilience Programming Report” and its recommendations for a deepened understanding, improved monitoring and evaluation, and widened scope of resilience programming within the ongoing crisis response plans inside Syria and in neighboring countries.
The panel will provide 3 perspectives on the state of resilience programming: global (OECD), national (government) and NGO.
