DFID/NGO Roundtable on Syria

On the 1st of November, Rethink Rebuild Society attended a roundtable discussion held by The UK Department for International Development (DFID) with NGOs working on the humanitarian response to Syria. The discussion addressed a number of issues and challenges including an overview of the political environment on Syria and the UK's vision of a negotiated political settlement as an end to the conflict, the De-Escalation Zones and the UK's diminished role in the Astana track, UK means of support to civil society, and DFID's humanitarian response and activities. NGO representatives underscored the importance of continuous engagements with DFID, with another roundtable discussion scheduled to commence in the coming months.
