Alan’s recent visit to the Zaatari refugee camp in Jordan was covered in detail in The Guardian’s ‘Global Development’ section this week.

The camp, which is currently hosting around 100,000 refugees who have fled the conflict in Syria, was the focus of Alan’s Jordanian trip. He announced an increase in support for displaced Syrians, as well as the Jordanian communities that are hosting them, and highlighted the work that DFID is currently doing to try and prevent a ‘lost generation’ of Syrian children.
