The Facility for Refugees in Turkey channels support to refugees and host communities in Türkiye. We followed up on our 2018 recommendations and examined whether the Facility provided efficient and effective support. We found that it provided relevant support in difficult circumstances and that the Commission had improved the Facility’s management by implementing our previous recommendations. All audited projects addressed beneficiaries’ needs and were delivering their planned outputs, but implementation was delayed significantly for various reasons. There was no systematic assessment of project costs, and insufficient measurement of impact. Sustainability was only ensured for infrastructure projects. We conclude that the Facility could have achieved greater value for money and demonstrable impact, and we make recommendations for future action.
