star this property answer text <p>Syria’s neighbours have been generous in welcoming huge numbers of refugees, but tighter border restrictions are making it increasingly difficult for people to leave Syria. We hold regular discussions with host governments on this issue, and support UN refugee agencies UNHCR and UNRWA in their advocacy. There are over 3.9 million Syrian refugees in the region, including over 1.7 million in Turkey, over 1.1 million in Lebanon, and over 629,000 in Jordan. There are also 560,000 Palestinian refugees registered in Syria and thousands more in neighbouring countries, including many who have fled Syria. Whilst addressing the immediate needs of refugees and vulnerable members of host communities, UK aid is also supporting their longer term resilience and stability through funding to Lebanese and Jordanian municipalities for the running of essential public services, such as education.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The UK co-sponsored Security Council Resolutions 2165 and 2191, enabling the UN to deliver cross-border aid without the consent of the Syrian regime. We continue to call on all sides to the conflict to ensure free, unimpeded access for neutral and impartial humanitarian agencies to provide vital assistance to those in need. We worked hard to mobilise funding from other donors ahead of the third Kuwait Pledging Conference in March, which raised $3.6 billion, and we work alongside the UN to maintain momentum on fundraising longer-term. We also provide long term funding to our partners so they can plan ahead, and encourage on other donors to do the same.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>We are taking a comprehensive approach to the migrant crisis. A vital part of this response must be to stabilise the source countries from which migrants are fleeing, including through provision of more jobs and livelihood opportunities reducing poverty and the pressure to migrate. In the long-term, development assistance addresses the root causes of instability and insecurity, reducing inequality and providing economic opportunities for all. To this end, DFID is investing £1.8 billion on economic development globally in 2015/16.</p> more like this
