Description

We will have a presentation on the 2017 Humanitarian Needs Overview (HNO) for Syria, focusing mainly on the methodology and the key findings, highlighting also some of the challenges faced in this very complex Syria context. The presenters will also briefly present the Whole of Syria approach and the coordination structure, highlighting some of the key findings of the Whole of Syria review.

The Whole of Syria review, which is about to be finalised, has three main objectives: 1) to review the contribution of the WoS approach and related mechanisms to the overall humanitarian response in Syria; 2) to consider whether WoS approach and architecture, as currently constituted, is ‘fit for purpose’ (cost effective, light, flexible, etc.), meeting its intended goals and abiding by the principles set for it; and 3) to consider what alternative approaches, structures and processes might result in greater effectiveness and cost benefit.
