Purpose of the Report
The Status of Service Provision in Idleb City report was written upon the request of several stakeholders. The report is considered a pilot project, to be used as a proof of concept for IMU’s new, mixed methods research methodology. The report provides information about the status of service provision in Idleb City, as well as public opinions of these services.
Following a feedback process, the IMU will produce a report that assesses services in communities throughout Idleb province.
The ACU’s Information Management Unit launched the third version of its Syrian Public School Assessment Report, to highlight the impact of the Syrian conflict on education and the needs of students and school supplies. The questionnaire for this report was developed from questionnaires used in previous reports in order to reach several indicators.
The report consists of 12 sections in addition to the methodology:
A sharp increase of the overall registration figure was noted in the first quarter of the year. It is believed that this is the direct consequence of a stricter application of the 30 days rule following pre-registration: if no action is taken by the security apparatus, the pre-registered individuals are automatically cleared at the end of 30 days and show as registered. However Syrian refugees are facing difficulties in obtaining identity cards which limits their access to services such as health and education.
The quarterly dashboard summarizes the progress made by partners involved in the Lebanon Crisis Response and highlights trends affecting people in need. The Health Sector in Lebanon is working to: OUTCOME 1) Improved access to comprehensive primary healthcare (PHC) ; OUTCOME 2) improve access to hospital and advanced referral care; OUTCOME 3) improve outbreak control; OUTCOME 4) Improved Child, Adolescent & Youth Health.
Changes in Context - First Quarter
Uganda received the largest number of new refugees last year, more than half a million people. “The system protecting refugees will collapse if we do not step up our support to countries like Uganda. The richest and most stable countries from Europe to the US do their uttermost to keep refugees away. At the same time, they are not adequately funding reception of refugees in poor host countries,” said Jan Egeland, Secretary General of the Norwegian Refugee Council.
Erbil (Basirma, Darashakran, Kawergosk, Qushtapa):
In all camps, routine provision of safe drinking water (averaging 85 l/p/d), O&M of water networks, maintenance of WASH facilities, including water quality monitoring continued through government counterparts - DESW and BHRA.
Distribution of second-hand clothes from a local clothing company was organized in Bnaslawa camp for Syrian refugees in Erbil Governorate by UNHCR partner agency, Qandil. The company is ready to donate on a regular basis including blankets, pants, baby clothes, shirts and pyjamas.
776 cases were referred for multi-purpose cash assistance in April from Erbil, Dohuk and Sulaymaniah governorate. Serious medical condition, child at risk, and physical/medical disability were reasons for 75% of the referrals.
The overall situation of the sector: the total shelter capacity in Syrian refugee camps amounts to 20,374 shelter units. In 2016, UNHCR constructed 2,512 shelter units (comprised of a concrete slab, kitchen, family latrine and shower). A total of 17,224 (88%) shelter units are now constructed and occupied, with more than 17,000 refugee households (about 85,000 individuals) benefiting from satisfactory shelter conditions in the camps.
This update is a coordination tool to improve communication between sectors and up to the Humanitarian Partners Forum (HPF). It focuses on processes, rather than achievements. The latter are covered through separate monthly sector dashboards, available through the inter-agency portal and at http://data.unhcr.org/jordan/sectors/

The Cluster addresses the coordination of emergency Shelter and NFI needs and promotes household and community resilience.
