Over 2.8 million IDPs are living in Northwest Syria, including 960,000 people have who have been newly displaced since December as a consequence of the latest escalation in conflict. Shelter options are extremely limited and many IDPs resort to inadequate types of shelter. According to HNAP, 44% of IDPs use tents as shelter, around 9% are staying in substandard shelter, most of which are unfinished buildings; and 3% of IDPs have found public buildings, like schools, to be the only shelter option, thereby disrupting the provision of public services.

Between January and March 2020, 427,654 people have been reached with shelter assistance.
