Introduction and Needs

Seven years into the crisis, the scale and severity of needs across Syria remain deep and far-reaching. Over half of the country’s population have fled their homes, including 5.5 million refugees and 6.1 million internally displaced. 13.1 million Syrians remain in need of humanitarian assistance (HNO 2018). Despite a reduction in the level of hostilities in certain parts of the country, which explains the increase number of spontaneous returns in 2017, displacements continue at a high rate with an estimated 1.7 million people newly displaced in the first nine months of 2017 alone. 

In 2018, IOM will continue to provide multi-sectoral humanitarian assistance to vulnerable groups inside Syria including people living in besieged and hard to reach areas, IDPs living in camps and collective centers, newly-displaced populations fleeing active hostilities, spontaneous returnees, and over-burdened host communities hosting a large concentration of IDPs and/or spontaneous returnees. IOM assistance will include the provision of essential Non-food items (NFIs) and Shelter assistance, provision of emergency health care, community and individual based protection interventions, and the enhancement of Water, Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH) infrastructure. In addition, IOM will focus on early recovery, livelihoods and community stabilization in areas where intensity of conflict has decreased and where competition and tensions over access to services and economic opportunities is high.

IOM is an active member of all sectors and clusters activated in Damascus, Gaziantep and Amman under the Whole of Syria coordination structure. IOM is currently leading the Whole of Syria efforts towards Protection Against Sexual Exploitation and Abuse (PSEA). IOM is a leading agency in the field of needs assessments and monitoring in coordination with OCHA. IOM also supports the response efforts of partners via the management of emergency contingency stocks in northern Syria and the provision of a common transport service for southern Syria.

Overall Targeted Beneficiaries: 1,150,000 beneficiaries, including IDPs, returnees, host communities and partners
