Alongside multiple conflicts, the Middle East region is one of those most affected by climate change, now an increasing cause of further migration and displacement, and straining natural resources.
Working in Iraq, Jordan, Lebanon, Syria, Türkiye, and Yemen; DRC works not only with those affected by conflicts in the region, but also with migrant communities, in particular in Türkiye and Yemen.
Given the protracted nature of conflicts and displacement, DRC’s work provides both life-saving assistance in emergencies, but also supports communities to prepare for the future: for example, by accessing documentation, developing skills, increasing access to public services, and restoring livelihoods.
