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).

Shelter is a major issue both for the IDPs but also for the host communities as IDPs are seeking refuge in schools, mosques, unfinished buildings and in the open air. This Emergency response from SDC with winterized material (including tents) aims at supporting UNHCR in its protection mandate.

In December 2013, another armed conflict started in Iraq’s Anbar province, before rapidly spreading to central and northern Iraq. Large segments of the civilian population were forced to abandon their homes. Many of these refugees have fled to Baghdad, where they are not properly protected and have insufficient basic supplies. The SDC is supporting the Norwegian Refugee Council (NRC), an international non-governmental organisation working on behalf of internally displaced persons in Baghdad.
