Introduction and Needs

With the crisis in Syria reaching its seventh year, millions of Syrians continue to seek refuge in neighboring countries, including Turkey, where over 3.1 million are registered under Temporary Protection (TP). Over 92 percent of the Syrian population in Turkey lives amongst host communities in rural and urban areas. Despite the TP regulation and the Regulation on Access to Work for Syrians under the TP, the large number of refugees accessing social services has stretched national structures and capacity to the utmost, particularly in those areas which host a high proportion of Syrians.
IOM Turkey’s response strategy for 2018 is underpinned by an integrated, multisector approach represented by three pillars of interventions. Bridging the gap between the humanitarian and development work, these pillars promote a coherent, effective and coordinated approach which is aligned with national and regional efforts. Pillar One focuses on the emergency and humanitarian response provided during the onset of the crisis and addresses the continuous humanitarian needs in the country. Pillar Two aims to support affected populations including refugees and host communities to improve stability through supporting progress towards context-appropriate durable solutions alongside access to income generating activities and rehabilitating community infrastructure. The goal of Pillar Three is to build national ownership of key stakeholders through investing in the development of their organizational and technical capacity to provide quality humanitarian and long-term development assistance. Supporting the capacity of stakeholders involved in humanitarian and recovery assistance improves national ownership of systems and processes and response. Under this pillar, initiatives will focus on local authorities and civil society organizations to improve policy and legislation, and migrant and refugee services. 
IOM is co-leading the MHPSS sub group, the shelter task force and the Winterization Task force. IOM Turkey is also an active member of the Basic Needs, Education, Food Security, Health, Livelihoods and Protection sectors that are featuring under the 3RP (Refugee and Resilience Response Plan). IOM works in coordination with the Disaster and Emergency Management Presidency (AFAD), Directorate General of Migration Management (DGMM) the relevant Ministries in Turkey, UN agencies and other stakeholders.
