While media coverage has focused on the number refugees admitted by individual nations, far less attention has been paid to the United Nations Refugee Agency, the intergovernmental body coordinating the response to the crisis. In 2015, the organization ran two concurrent aid initiatives: the Regional Refugee and Resilience Plan (3RP) and the Syria Response Plan (SRP). The initiatives were primarily funded by contributions from nearly 40 countries plus private donors. International Relations Online created the following data visualization to show the amount each country contributed, both in total dollar amounts and as a percentage of gross domestic product.
To ensure the health, safety, and security of Syrian refugees, the U.N. Refugee Agency must raise nearly $4.6 billion in 2016. As of March 2016, it had only received $335 million, leaving a funding gap of more than $4.2 billion. You can raise awareness by:
