It was a great relief to read that we would probably be able to give a pretty good assessment of the progress and impact of the work we are doing. It all sounds a lot less daunting now.

Briefing Paper 30: The NGO sector in Syria – an overview
This paper gives an overview of the NGO sector in Syria. It was originally written in 2010 as an internal INTRAC document to support a capacity building project for the Syrian NGO sector, conducted by INTRAC in conjunction with the Syrian NGO Platform and UNDP, and which benefited from a grant made by the British Embassy in Damascus in 2010. Given the emergency now engulfing Syria, both INTRAC and the author feel it would be useful to publish it – the urgent need for humanitarian aid to Syria during the crisis, some of which may be channelled through local partners, and effective reconstruction and development work in a post-Assad Syria will require a good understanding of the current NGO sector in Syria.
