Context

 

The Middle East is currently experiencing a profound crisis. The conflicts in Syria and Iraq are both a reflection and a transmitter of this crisis, with growing potential to further destabilise neighbouring countries and the wider region. These crises have resulted in a humanitarian disaster affecting more than 13.5 million people who were forced to flee their homes from Syria, and more than 17 million people in need of humanitarian aid (12.2 in Syria and 5.2 in Iraq).

 

The programme “Qudra – Resilience for Syrian refugees, IDPs and Host communities in Response to the Syrian and Iraqi Crises” is a regional action that seeks to strengthen the resilience of Syrian refugees, IDPs and host communities in response to the Syrian and Iraqi crises in five areas or modules (Specific Objectives, SO). Qudra is commissioned and financed by the EU Regional Madad Trust Fund and the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development.

 

The Programme has a duration period from June 2016 – June 2019. It is implemented in Jordan, Lebanon, North Iraq (Kurdistan Region of Iraq), and Turkey by a group of European Member States Agencies, led by GIZ, the Spanish Organisation AECID, and Expertise France and Hungarian Interchurch Aid (HIA). It covers five specific objectives (SO); Education Infrastructure (SO1); Skills Development (SO2); Social Cohesion (SO3); Supporting Local Administration (SO4); Facilitating Dialogue and Dissemination (SO5). The specific objectives and implementing partners vary across the countries.

 

In Turkey, Expertise France implements part of the SO3 related to Social Cohesion. The Specific Objective is to foster social cohesion between Syrian refugees and their host communities. It will be achieved through assisting local structures in strengthening their outreach services and bringing Turkish communities and Syrian refugees closer together through a variety of joint activities. Building social cohesion between host and refugee communities comes at the very heart of the proposed action. To do so, activities revolve around 3 pillars: (i) community based activities, (ii) support local institutions, (iii) dissemination of the information. Expertise France work closely Ministry of National Education, Civil society organisations and GIZ.
