‘Turkey managed refugee influx remarkably well’

Turkey has managed refugee influx “remarkably well,” said the United Nations Population Fund’s representative in the country.

“It [Turkey] set a standard for the world to follow [...] A good response must address the entire development range, for example, economics, employment, social welfare, education, health, and infrastructure.” Karl Kulessa told Anadolu Agency.

Turkey hosts some 3.5 million Syrian refugees -- more than any other other country in the world -- spending more than $32 billion from its own national resources to help and shelter refugees since the beginning of the Syrian civil war. 

Kulessa also talked about population dynamics in Turkey and the world, as well as the fund’s recent report on global fertility trends and reproductive rights, titled “The Power of Choice: Reproductive Rights and the Demographic Transition”.
