U.N. Failed To Implement 2017 Recommendations To Reform Syrian Aid Response

IRIN: EXCLUSIVE: U.N. shelved 2017 reforms to Syria aid response
“The U.N. officials running Syrian relief efforts failed to implement the key recommendations of a 2017 review of its operating principles despite being criticized for allowing the government of Bashar al-Assad to dictate where and when aid is delivered, IRIN has found. … Humanitarian access, rather than being kept separate from the war, as prescribed by the Geneva Conventions, has been one of the most highly politicized aspects of the Syrian conflict…” (Beals, 2/26).
