Background and Program Description
Syria is facing one of the largest humanitarian crises of the 21st century. Now approaching its sixth year, with no end in sight, the conflict has resulted in the deaths of over 250,000 people.

This will include a screening mechanism to help international organizations identify capable local partners, a targeted training and capacity building program, the development of an information-sharing platform and an analysis of monitoring and evaluation approaches.
