Throughout 2017, conflict in northeast Syria resulted in significant displacement of civilians and a deterioration in humanitarian conditions. Although conflict in AlHasakeh and Ar-Raqqa governorates has largely subsided since the expulsion of the group known as the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL), tens of thousands of households remain in Internally Displaced People (IDP) camps.

Ongoing clashes between multiple parties in Deir-ez-Zor governorate also continue to displace civilians. In addition to the IDP population, Iraqi refugees who fled conflict in previous years continue to reside in camps in northeast Syria. REACH has conducted the second in a series of profiling assessments of six formal camps and two informal sites in order to assess humanitarian conditions and identify ongoing challenges, as well as to map the locations of critical infrastructure and facilities in each camp. The previous round of camp profiles can be accessed here - November 2017


Data was collected between 20 February and 5 March 2018 through 665 randomly sampled household interviews and mapping surveys of intrastructure in Al Hol,
Areesheh, Ein Issa, and Mabruka camps. Direct Key Informant (KI) interviews were conducted with camp management in Newroz and Roj camps, and Twahina and Abu Khashab informal sites. Indicators were developed and amended with input from northeast Syria actors. Given the dynamic situation in these sites, information should only be considered as relevant and representative to the time of data collection.
