Worsening bad living conditions are increasingly engulfing IDPs in northern Syria camps; especially with the advent of the winter season, with their growing numbers and consequently the growing of their needs and the scarcity of aid provided by humanitarian organizations, especially during the past two years. It is worth noting that late humanitarian response and delay in sending emergency materials delayed the implementation of winter projects and negatively affected IDPs.
Information Management Unit (IMU) of the Assistance Coordination Unit (ACU) has prepared for the third year consecutively a study1 on the most important IDP needs for winter season in 176 camps within nine different clusters in Northern Syria with 13 camps wider coverage compared to the previous winter needs dashboard. This study aims to strengthen the planning and decision-making capacity of aid actors responding to IDPs crisis and provide humanitarian aid that meets all the needs in order to reduce the bad effects of winter on IDPs. The total number of displaced families within the assessed camps was 34,790, with a total population of 192,284.
