Emergency WASH response to ongoing displacement in Northwest Syria (20-RR-CEF-011)

Project overview

The project intends to provide support to lifesaving/emergency WASH facilities and services for 116,675 new IDPs (provision of safe water, solid waste management and latrines construction) in Aleppo and Idleb governorate where vulnerable IDPs have chosen to move seeking safety and minimum package of services. Additionally, the project will help support the repair of four water stations and four sewerage networks that would benefit 92,700 people (40% of which are IDPs) in Maaret Tamsrin in Idleb district. Repair of water and sanitation system is expected to enhance the ability of host communities to accommodate additionally displaced people in this unfolding situation. The key focus of the WASH response is to prevent potential outbreak of water and vector borne diseases such as acute bloody diarrhea, typhoid and leishmaniasis, apart from meeting the basic daily needs of people such as drinking water, water for other domestic uses, latrines, and waste management services. The project focuses on two key outputs, in alignment with the Syria Humanitarian Response Plan, namely: • Output 1: Provision of minimum WASH requirements including supplies and, services and to affected target population: this output addresses the immediate WASH needs of 116,675 recently displaced IDP’s in informal settlements in Salqin, Harim, Kafr Takharim, Qourqeena, Dana and Armanaz in Harim district, Maaret Tamsrin, Idleb and Bennsh in Idleb district and Atareb in Jebal Saman district. • Output 2: Provision of safe water through minor repair and maintenance of existing WASH services available to the affected target population: this output addresses the WASH needs of 92,700 people (40% of which are IDPs) in Maaret Tamsrin in Idleb district.
