Map: Which countries are giving their fair share for Syria?

By Joe Dyke

As delegates meet in Kuwait to pledge financial support for Syria's four year-old crisis, one NGO has been asking which rich countries have been giving their fair share to relief efforts.

On Monday Oxfam released a report outlining what each country ought to have given to Syria in 2014 based to the size of their economies. It called this amount their 'fair share' of the $7.7 billion sought for the over three million refugees in neighbouring countries plus millions in need inside the country.

Again using the size of rich countries' economies, the report determined how many refugees each country should have taken in to hit Oxfam's recommendation of 196,000 resettled globally. This would still be just five percent of the total refugee burden, which is overwhelmingly hosted by Syria's struggling neighbours Lebanon, Jordan and Turkey (the three were not included in the study).

Zoom in and out on the map and click on a country to reveal how much they have pledged and how many refugees they have promised to take.

Kuwait topped the funding list - with $300 million donated when its fair share would have been just $27 million - but has taken no Syrian refugees.

The Scandinavian countries were also particularly generous - Norway pledged more than twice its fair share financially, while taking nearly double its share of refugees.

Russia, in particular, came out badly. In 2014 the country pledged only 7 percent of its fair share financially, while no refugees have been accepted. 

Several key 'middle income' countries - including Brazil, China and India - were not included in the Oxfam study.
