the governorates of Aleppo, Idleb and Lattakia, and 165 camps within nine clusters in Northern
Syria in the governorates of Aleppo and Idleb during three months March, April and May 2016.
The assessed clusters are Atma, Al Karama, Al Rahma, Sarmada, Salqin, Qah, Kherbet Aljouz,
Jarablus and Bab Al Salameh. The number of individuals in the assessed camps had increased
during May 2016 with 1,921 IDPs because the number of incoming people is bigger than number
of outgoing people. As well as, the increase in the number of IDPs between January and
May was 7,829 individuals. The hard living conditions in many camps, lack of services, absence

World Food Programme (WFP) Executive Director says the United Nations must unite to help avoid further suffering for those worst affected by the conflict in Syria.

Ertharin Cousin also told the UN Security Council on Wednesday (27 Jan) that WFP’s work in Syria was being disrupted because UN resolutions were not being met.

“To prevent people from imminent starvation, we need the support and action of every Council Member and every Member State,” she said.

“Preventing mass starvation requires more than a four-town agreement.

“Preventing a humanitarian crisis requires unimpeded and sustained access for humanitarian organizations to bring immediate relief – including food – to all those in need inside Syria.

“Preventing a humanitarian crisis requires humanitarian pauses and unconditional, monitored ceasefires to allow food and other urgent assistance to be delivered to civilians, to support the necessary vaccinations and other health campaigns.

“Preventing a humanitarian crisis as well as a food security and nutrition crisis requires a cessation of attacks on civilian infrastructure.

“Preventing a humanitarian crisis requires freedom of movement for all civilians and the immediate lifting of all sieges by all parties.

“This is the only way to end hunger and to treat malnutrition, child by child, adult-by-adult, town by town”.

Resolutions “not to impede or hinder” assistance had not been fully realized, said the Executive Director, with more than 4.6 million people living in areas that are besieged or hard to reach.

Obstacles to WFP’s work included numerous checkpoints, the presence of security forces within warehouses, and extensive administrative procedures.

“The time for fully and collectively realizing the resolutions is long overdue,” said the Executive Director.

“Access must not be arbitrary. Access must not be ad hoc. Access must not be one-time.

Effective access must not require unreasonable approvals. Access must be reasonably safe, regular, transparent and accountable”.

The consequences of restricted access had become clear, said the Executive Director:

“Every day, we receive alarming reports of lack of food, of lack of water, of acute malnutrition, and of death.
