The NGO Forum for NGOs operating in Northern Syria was established in January 2013 in response to the need for facilitated humanitarian coordination. In the absence of the normal UN led humanitarian architecture the Forum was particularly required as an information sharing platform and for the coordination of sector and thematic activities.
The Forum was established as a voluntary body with specific criteria for membership. It is governed by a Steering Committee of seven elected members and has a Secretariat to support the administrative, coordination and specific thematic functions. The Secretariat is donor funded and is supported by ECHO.
The Forum which is known as the NGO Forum for NGOs operating in Northern Syria is intended to function only as long as is needed to assist in humanitarian action and development aid in Northern Syria.
