Provision of emergency shelter support to internally displaced persons in Syria (north-east and north-west) (20-UF-HCR-010)

Project overview

UNHCR will provide life-saving and life-sustaining shelter support to respond in a rapid and timely manner to the needs of the most vulnerable displaced population in areas with high severity of needs in north-east Syria. Through this project, UNHCR will respond to emergency shelter needs of IDPs residing in targeted camps in north-east Syria through the provision and installation of 6,200 family tents benefiting 24,477 individuals, out of whom over 58 per cent are women and girls. To address the needs in north-west Syria, UNHCR will provide displaced people with emergency shelter. UNHCR will purchase, transport and distribute, the latter through its partners. UNHCR will target IDPs in sub-districts hosting the largest numbers of displaced people (access permitting) and will provide 1,750 tents, reaching approximately 10,500 newly displaced persons in Aleppo and Idleb governorates. The project targets a total of 34,977 IDPs with ES/NFI engagement.
