Humanitarian and development actors often find it difficult to coordinate their work in the field – they have for example different objectives and different time horizons.  Looking at the present crisis in Syria – what are the lessons to be drawn? How can emergency assistance to refugees and other crises affected populations be better coordinated with long term development and post-war reconstruction?

A team of researchers from the German Evaluation Office, DEval, describes, by reviewing existing literature, the successes and challenges for humanitarian and development actors who try to work together in Syria.

In their report Building Bridges between International Humanitarian and Development Responses to Forced Migration they focus on seven gaps that are identified. The report is the starting point for a broader discussion on the challenges of supporting Syria to move forward.
