Syria is the world’s biggest humanitarian crisis. Billions of dollars in international aid are needed to support people caught up in the conflict.
The Supporting Syria and the Region conference brought together world leaders from around the globe to rise to the challenge of raising the money needed to help millions of people whose lives have been torn apart by the devastating civil war.
The UK, Germany, Kuwait, Norway, and the United Nations co-hosted the conference in London on 4 February 2016 to raise significant new funding to meet the immediate and longer-term needs of those affected.
The conference raised over US$ 12 billion in pledges – $6 billion for 2016 and a further $6.1 billion for 2017-20 to enable partners to plan ahead.
