We coordinate for the common good.
The Shelter Sector in Syria is one of the activated sectors to respond to the civil war that erupted in 2011. The sector values the need to collectively address gaps, ensure complementarity and strengthen accountability to the people it aims to help. Activated in 2012, the sector has been co-led by the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) with the Ministry of Local Administration (MoLA) in Syria.
We Share Information
We process data to better decide.
The sector functions using evidence-based approach. It treats information as support to better protect the displaced people it aims to assist. With information management, the sector is able to identify the most vulnerable, deliver appropriate response, and monitor its impact. The sector recognizes the need to provide the right information to the right people at the right time using the right channels.
We Rebuild Lives
We rebuild homes to alleviate suffering.
More than rehabilitating shelters, the sector provides hope to vulnerable displaced people. In every shelter project the sector provides, it helps these people get back on their feet. Ranging from live-saving shelter support to resilient-oriented shelter assistance, the sector has been committed to provide durable and long-term shelter solutions to all affected population in Syria.
