Syrian refugees: Inter-agency regional update, 29 September 2014

HIGHLIGHTS

  • Some 160,000 Syrian refugees have crossed into southern Turkey since 19 September following an insurgency of the Islamic State in northern Syria.

  • Support is limited for the 84 per cent of refugees not living in established camps in Turkey. Systems are not in place to address shelter needs, identify the extremely vulnerable and provide protection or other basic services. The number of registered refugees is likely to be only part of the overall caseload, whose needs have not yet been fully assessed.
