This multi-sectoral needs assessment is part of a monthly data collection exercise which aims to gather information about needs and the humanitarian situation inside Syria. The factsheets present information collected in November 2017, referring to the situation in October 2017.
These factsheets present information at the community level* for 16 sub-districts in Rural Damascus governorate. Selected key indicators for the following sectors are included in the factsheets: displacement, shelter, non-food items (NFIs), health, food security, water sanitaion and hygiene (WASH) and education. The factsheets do not cover the entire range of indicators gathered in the questionnaire.
