The fourth Brussels Conference on Supporting the future of Syria and the region was held on 30 June 2020. It was held in a virtual format on this occasion. The Conference was co-chaired by the European Union (EU) and the United Nations (UN).
The poor humanitarian situation of those displaces and taking refuge in Syria's neighbouring countries became even more challenging following the COVID-19 (coronavirus) pandemic. The Conference was seen as an opportunity to gather relevant actors to effectively address the situation in Syria and across its region, as the conflict entered its tenth year.
The previous Brussels Conferences brought together a part of the international community and served to catalyse and relaunch dialogue and to back UN efforts in favour of a political solution to the Syrian conflict in line with UN Security Council Resolution 2254. They also allowed the donor community to pledge vital support for the Syrian population and for neighbouring countries hosting Syrian refugees.
