About us
UNDP has been active in Syria since 1975. UNDP works in about 170 countries and territories, helping to achieve the eradication of poverty and the reduction of inequalities and exclusion. UNDP offers global perspective and local insight to help empower lives and build resilient nations.

Since the onset of the crisis in Syria in 2011, UNDP has responded to the huge needs that emerged by implementing a unique resilience programme to support the Syrian people. UNDP goes beyond humanitarian assistance in the sense that it strengthens the resilience of the Syrian people by enhancing positive coping mechanisms, that enable them to rely on themselves and rebuild their livelihoods, rather than remain dependent on humanitarian assistance. Within the UN Humanitarian Response Plan (HRP), UNDPs interventions are focused on the rehabilitation of basic and social infrastructures, providing livelihoods support, enhancing economic recovery and social inclusion, and strengthening social cohesion.
