Syria publishes report on the state of its population during the war

Damascus, Jan 31 (Prensa Latina) The Syrian Commission for Family and Population Affairs published a report on the State of the Syrian Population-2020 entitled 'Return and Stability,' with a special focus on the impacts of the war on society.

The document is of utmost importance because it contains the economic and social development indicators, and summarizes the needs of the population during the conflict, Prime Minister Hussein Arnous said.

According to the chief executive, the report shows the great wear and tear caused by the war, which prevented the implementation of economic and social development plans that were going in the right direction and achieving positive indicators.

He denounced another challenge represented by the economic blockade and economic coercive measures that caused a drastic decrease in job opportunities for young people.

According to Minister of Social Affairs Mohamed Seif el-Din, the report is a true reference document and is the result of combined efforts among several ministries and state and non-governmental entities, in addition to experts and specialists in demography and the labor market.

It includes objective information based on reliable data in terms of sources and methodologies on the situation of the population, and diagnoses the cracks caused by the war, he said.

The head of the Syrian Commission for Family and Population Affairs, Samar al-Sibai, said that the document monitored a group of phenomena that emerged as a result of the war, including school dropouts, child labor and early marriage, in addition to displacement and its danger to the distribution of the population.

We aim to reach healthy lifestyles and implement the Syria-2030 sustainable development agenda, in addition to achieving a better quality of life despite economic conditions and unfair sanctions, the official said.
