FACTSHEET JULY-SEPTEMBER 2023

By March, one month after the earthquake, there were 2.6 million displaced individuals living in tents in the EQ-affected provinces. Following the national elections in Turkiye at the end of May, there were large-scale relocations by government authorities leading to closure of tent sites and clusters, especially in urban centres. There was lack of clarity in the government's response plans. The levels of uncertainty were a barrier in having a clear response plan because it was unclear where people would be transferred to.
