The Guardian highlights the main points as the London conference closes.
- British Prime Minister David Cameron said the conference has raised more than $10bn – the largest amount of money ever raised in one day in response to a humanitarian crisis. The prime minister said the conference received pledges approaching $6bn for 2016 alone, and a further $5bn over the longer term to 2020.
- One million children currently not in school would be given access to education by the end of the next school year. Countries in the region have agreed to open up their economies to create new jobs. The move will be backed by loans from international financial institutions and access to European markets.
- Britain pledged $1.75bn in new aid between now and 2020, and the US committed $900m to bring total US humanitarian spending to $5bn. Germany, which took in more than 1 million refugees last year, said it would give $2.5bn through 2018.
- UN-brokered peace talks with the Syrian government and opposition have been suspended until 25 February amid concern about continuing airstrikes.
