Country Overview

Since 2011, conflict across Syria has resulted in severe destruction, large-scale displacement and an escalating humanitarian crisis. As of May 2018, there is an estimate of 13.1 million people in need of assistance within Syria, with three million living in hard-to-reach and besieged areas. Given the constantly changing conflict dynamics, timely and comparable information is crucial for effective needs-based responses.

REACH first started working on Syria in 2012, supporting humanitarian actors operating in the north of the country. Since then, REACH programs have expanded and are provide humanitarian situation monitoring across the country. REACH also conducts regular sectoral and inter-sectoral assessment on the needs of conflict-affected populations.
