G7/G20: News & Multimedia
G20 Press Call
Tuesday, November 10, InterAction hosted a special press telebriefing featuring experts from several leading NGOs on what steps G20 leaders should take to address the historic crisis in Syria. The speakers discussed the need for a political solution to the conflict in Syria; explored the current state of refugee relief efforts; and shared key insights gained by the NGO community from on-the-ground efforts to aid Syrian refugees in Europe, Turkey, and the Middle East. Listen to the conversation.
Civil society is calling for the creation of a Regional Growth and Stabilization Plan to help those countries most affected by the Syrian refugee crisis to mitigate the impact of the crisis on their economies, health systems, and social services. We urge the G20 to support immediate action to respond to this crisis.
It is imperative that G20 leaders take action to address the needs of the world’s poorest and most vulnerable people. This paper contains the recommendations of the U.S. G7/G20 Advocacy Alliance, a group of over 40 non-governmental organizations and labor groups.
