Work is currently underway to agree on a new methodology to prepare a new 2024–2026 response plan, in partnership with ministries, government institutions, donors, and international organizations.

In this way, it encourages donor countries to support Syrian refugees and host communities, and urges the international community to commit to its humanitarian duties and financial pledges.
