Eight years into the Syrian conflict, the humanitarian situation continues to deteriorate in the region. Russian Federation and Iran, supporters of the Assad government, did participate but neither the Syrian government or opposition was represented.

The Syria crisis is the world's largest protection and displacement crisis and 13.1 million people are in need of humanitarian assistance and protection inside the country.

"We want Syrians to know that they are not forgotten, we're appealing on their behave for an end to the violence", said Mark Lowcock, Representative for U.N. Humanitarian Affairs.

UN Syria envoy Staffan de Mistura on Tuesday urged the global community not to allow a new humanitarian catastrophe to unfold in the rebel-held northwestern province of Idlib, on the Turkish border, which has seen a massive influx of people fleeing the conflict.

With nearly 400,000 people displaced since mid-December and tens of thousands pouring in from other regions, Idlib has also been hit by air strikes in recent weeks as fighting continues, Mueller said. He said the plight of Syrian refugees in the region is getting worse, and will only detotiarion with reduced worldwide funding for aid.

The Lebanese prime minister, Saad Hariri, who is facing elections in two weeks, said: "The bitter truth is conditions have deteriorated for refugees since past year", adding "Lebanon remains a big refugee camp".

Britain, Germany and France were among those offering new money for refugees at the conference, which brought together 86 governments, aid groups and financial and regional institutions.

Hivin Kako, the executive director of the Bihar Relief Organisation, a Syrian NGO providing aid in northern Syria, called for worldwide donors to work harder to meet the $6bn target, but warned that a lack of discussion of the situation in northern Syria, where Turkish forces are engaged in military action, risked ignoring the reality of the situation on the ground.

"We were and are concerned on the humanitarian side by Idlib".

This was more than just a donor summit.

Mogherini underlined that the European Union - along with many around the table Wednesday - refuses to help rebuild Syria until meaningful peace moves to end the conflict resume in Geneva.

"We are seeing an escalation in military activities which is exactly the contrary" of what Russia, Iran, and Turkey promised to work toward, she said.

"We must not let down the people of Syria".

Moreover, EU foreign policy chief Federica Mogherini and UN Special Envoy for Syria Staffan de Mistura, who co-chaired the conference, have urged the event's participants to influence the parties to conflict in Syria to abandon the use of chemical weapons.
