Web Dialogue 1
In line with its objective to promote dialogue for exchange and innovation, the Qudra 2 programme is organizing a series of web-based “Resilience Dialogues”. The dialogues are bringing together practitioners from local and international implementing partners, as well as donor representatives to jointly reflect on challenges encountered and progress made in the Syria and Iraq crisis response. Based on a joint reflection on concrete implementation experience in the region, we want to address three points:
– What are the main challenges in the field?
– What works? What does not? And why?
– What does this mean for the future? What are recommendations for donors, implementing partners and local partners working on the crisis response?
“Qudra 2 – Resilience for refugees, IDPs, returnees and host communities in response to the protracted Syrian and Iraqi crises” is a regional action co-financed by the EU Regional Trust Fund in Response to the Syrian Crisis, the EU Madad Fund, the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) and Spanish Agency for International Development Cooperation (AECID) seeking to strengthen resilience for Syrian refugees, IDPs, returnees and host communities in response to the protracted Syrian and Iraqi crises.
Qudra – an Arabic word meaning ‘strength’, ‘ability’ or ‘resilience’. The programme is jointly implemented by the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH, Expertise France, Spanish Agency for International Development (AECID), Hungarian Interchurch Aid (HIA) and Belgium Development Agency (Enabel) in programme partner countries of Iraq, Jordan, Lebanon and Turkey. All five agencies, by pooling their experience and resources, endeavour to achieve a coherent concept and implementation in order to contribute to a shared European solution to the ongoing refugee crisis in the region.
