This guidance note was developed following February 6, 2023, earthquakes which led to the displacement of over 100,000 individuals across Northwest Syria (NWS). This exacerbated the already dire humanitarian situation in pre-existing IDP sites as many acted as shock absorbers for affected families. The CCCM Cluster also recorded the establishment of over 100 new reception and collective centers across Idleb and Aleppo. While the immediate humanitarian response was delivered by family members/relatives, through private donations, local and international NGOs, UN agencies, and the wider humanitarian community to new sites, the initial response was uncoordinated. This note is therefore expected to guide a consolidated response to the needs in the reception centers established to host the families displaced following the earthquakes.
