Management Response: [Added: 2019/05/28] [Last Updated: 2019/05/30]

UNDP Syria has adopted a bottom-up approach to  identify the needs and priorities, as the following:

  • Socio Economic Governorate: work is guided by conflict analysis developed though the regularly updated governorate profiles which includes a situation analysis of different socio-economic and vital sectors in the target governorate to update needs,
  • Area-based approach: an area-based response plan is then developed and updated in close consultation with local stakeholders under the framework of UNDP’s mandate in livelihoods, early recovery and resilience.

In general, UNDP Syria prepares its Early Recovery plan for the targeted areas in each governorate separatly,  when each plan includes a detailed context assessment of the needs, priorities and opportunities in relation to the basic and social infrastructure rehabilitation in detail including types of intervention, targeted beneficiaries and impacts . These assessments are usually  shared with each donor especially when preparing for new projects agreements; however, a sepcial focus on the wider outomes and impact will be made and further shared with the donors community .
