DRC JULY 2011 SHELTER ASSESSMENT – MAIN FINDINGS AND RECOMMENDATIONS

This mission was undertaken between the 2nd and 18thof July 2011 to assess the shelter options for the Syrians displaced in Northern Lebanon (the Akkar region). The shelter options need to be evaluated both with respect to the current situation - a relatively small population (2,000-3,000) residing mostly with host families with a few in abandoned schools - and with respect to a potentially larger situation of displacement in the north.

RAPID-ASSESSMENT REPORT MISSION CONDUCTED IN THE BEKAA REGION ABOUT SYRIAN DISPLACEMENT

UNHCR, coordinating the operations in the North along side with the HRC (High Relief Commission) and DRC as its main implementing partner, requested from DRC to conduct a first rapid assessment in the Bekaa with the following objectives: a) To identify existing areas of displacement in the Bekaa, where displaced Syrians might have fled since the beginning of the crisis, b) To assess the capacities of these areas (or others) to host additional displaced Syrians, in the hypothesis of a larger influx.

DRC LIVELIHOOD ASSESSMENT

As a result of the unrest in Syria, the Akkar Region in northern Lebanon has hosted several thousand displaced Syrians since May 2011. While the numbers have fluctuated per month, UNHCR reports that in February 2012 there were 6,916 registered displaced Syrians in northern Lebanon.1 They entered the Akkar area both legally and illegally, giving some the right to move freely and restricting others to the area of Wadi Khaled.
