The needs of the 6.2 million internally displaced persons in Syria60 span across all sectors of
humanitarian assistance. IDP sites (Planned and self-Established Camps and Reception and Transit
Centres) represent a last resort for displaced populations that have exhausted financial and social
assets to meet their basic needs. There are currently an estimated 871,150, or 14 per cent of all IDPs,
currently residing in temporary sites, collective centres, planned camps and reception centres in northwest
Syria. Of these, almost half (428,138 IDPs) are in the north-west of the country, the majority of
whom are located in Idleb Governorate. The number of IDPs seeking shelter in last resort sites
increased by 16 per cent in 2018 in north-west Syria.
Multi-sectoral assistance in IDP sites cannot be guaranteed and families often face challenges in the
delivery of basic services. Out of over 9,90061 sites in in north-west Syria., some 5,900 are temporary
self-established sites that are not managed by humanitarian organisations. Collective centres,
numbering more than 1,800, often play an important role in receiving new arrivals within a community,
and compensate for the limited shelter availability in host communities. The 180 reception centres in
north-west Syria. also play a critical role by temporarily hosting many IDPs during major influxes.
Planned camps, managed by humanitarian organisations, add up to 2,000. The challenges faced by
IDPs in camps vary according to the type of site, however delivery of services is a challenge in all types
of sites, particularly water, sanitation and electricity. Shelter conditions, including the lack of heating
and privacy in sleeping and bathing areas, as well as poor hygiene, have also been reported as major
issues. Temporary sites are particularly vulnerable to the weather conditions, which presents major
challenges during heavy rains and snow storms.
