The fifth Brussels Conference on Supporting the future of Syria and the region was held on 29-30 March 2021. 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).
Over 80 countries and international organisations were represented in the Brussels V Conference. Participants addressed the situation in Syria and the region and renewed their support to the UN-led efforts for a comprehensive political solution to the conflict. The Brussels V Conference also provided a unique platform for dialogue with civil society in Syria and the region.
The conference succeeded in mobilising aid to Syrians inside the country and in the neighbouring countries, including for hosting communities, through pledges totalling €5.3 billion for 2021 and beyond.
