New publication Syria: Humanitarian Access Dilemmas
A large-scale offensive by the Syrian regime and Russia on the governorate in North West Syria would have threatened the lives and livelihoods of close to three million persons. This Policy Brief by Dr Esther Meininghaus (BICC) and Michael Kühn (Welthungerhilfe) analyses humanitarian access restraints in Syria and describes challenges for humanitarian aid delivery.
The Welthungerhilfe Policy Brief lines out trends that must be considered with utmost caution when debating future, humanitarian as well as non-humanitarian aid deliveries. Against this backdrop, the authors in particular give the following five concrete policy recommendations.
Enforce a political solution to the war
Insist on humanitarian principles
Secure safe exit to refuge
Set standards for criteria for development and reconstruction aid
Document reach of aid recipients transparently
