Swiss experts to UN agencies in the frame of the regional crises in the Middle East

01.01.2015 - 31.12.2016

As a result of the ongoing violence in Syria and in Iraq, more than 12.2 million people are in need of humanitarian assistance in Syria and 5.2 million people in Iraq by end of 2014. 3.3 million Syrian refugees (January 2015 figures) are registered and/or assisted by host governments, what leads to heavy burden on the resources of the host communities. SDC secondments to UN agencies of Swiss experts allow technical support, advice and strategic planning in the three domains of intervention of the Swiss Cooperation Strategy 2015-2018 (Basic services and emergency relief; Protection; Water), as well as in the domain of coordination. Through its experts, Switzerland can expand its operational engagement and humanitarian presence in the region, including in contexts where SDC has no office (Iraq and Syria).
