As the Syrian crisis enters its seventh year and refugees’ resources wane due to their prolonged displacement, families are struggling to make rent payments, income sources are not sustainable, many people are going into debt and school enrollment rates for Syrian children, especially in urban areas, are low. With prospects for returning to Syria uncertain in the next 12 months, WFP and UNHCR carried out a Joint Vulnerability Assessment (JVA).
The assessment investigated the status of Syrian refugees – in camps and outside of camps – to determine food-targeting criteria that would allow programme adjustments based on needs. It also was designed to address long-standing concerns expressed by refugees and local authorities regarding previous targeting.
