OVERVIEW
Durable solutions for refugees from Syria are based on a comprehensive protection and solutions strategy which seeks to: i) support host country and community resilience; ii) enable refugee self-reliance, including access to services, legal work opportunities and livelihoods; iii) expand access to resettlement in third countries and other complementary pathways, and; iv) plan for the return of refugees to Syria, on a voluntary basis, when conditions for a safe, dignified and sustainable return are in place.

Due to limited resettlement places, and small number of the most vulnerable refugees are submitted by UNHCR for resettlement, including women and children traumatized by war, sick and injured civilians who cannot access adequate healthcare, and other victims who continue to be affected by the crisis. In 2017, resettlement submissions from 3RP countries reduced by 52% compared to 2016 due to limited resettlement places. In contrast, the number of registered Syrian refugees increased from 4.8 million (end-2016) to 5.6 million today. The number of refugees meeting resettlement criteria and severity of their vulnerabilities continue to escalate.
