3 steps to improving humanitarian aid to Syria

This situation can be alleviated by providing the World Food Programme with stopgap assistance, ending the Syrian civil war and using United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon's World Humanitarian Summit in 2016 to restore balance to international aid, Patrick and Ghaffari argue.
