3RP partners’ priority regarding the Shelter Sector continues to be the provision of adequate, affordable and sustainable housing options for refugees living in host communities. For refugees in camps, 3RP partners focus on rehabilitation efforts to improve the infrastructure of the camp and upgrade shelters in order to contribute to sustainable living. During 2017, almost 13,000 households in camps have received assistance for shelter and shelter upgrades, while outside of camps over 21,500 households received assistance for shelter and shelter upgrades.

Highlights across the region in July include:

In Dohuk in Iraq, camp management has launched a multi-functional team (MFT) to conduct a shelter rapid assessment situation in Domiz 1 camp in Duhok (the largest Syrian refugee camp in Iraq with some 8,500 households). The team advised to upgrade 1,500 shelter units (1,200 in Domiz 1 and 300 in Domiz 2). This upgrading work will be funded by the Kuwait Fund for Arab Economic Development (KFAED).
