Even though the United Nations has been urging states to do more to help Syrian refugees with humanitarian aid and resettlement, the international response has been poor in relation to the scale of the crisis.

Follow up:

The number of Syrian refugees is now close to 2.4 million, more than the entire population of Slovenia. By January 2014, 19 countries had pledged a total of 18,000 resettlement places for refugees from the conflict.

Germany is leading the way in Syrian refugee resettlement, having pledged or offered 11,000 places. Canada comes second on the list with 1,300 while Sweden rounds off the top three with 1,200.
