  • Contingency Plan: The SNFI sector coordinated with focal points in Northern Syria on shelter and NFI needs and gaps with respect to the displacement scenarios developed for Contingency Plan in anticipation of Turkish advance.




  • Funding: In 2022, partners secured USD 112M and USD 190M for shelter and NFI responses respectively.

Gaps / challenges

  • Resource constraints: Only 29% of the funding required for winterization is secured till the end of December. If no additional resources are secured, a large portion of vulnerable populations will be deprived of critical aid required to protection against harsh winter conditions.
  • Economic hardship: Deteriorating economic situation, fluctuation in commodity prices and severe shortage in power supply is limiting sector partners’ ability to effectively structure the response planning.
