Syria remains a complex humanitarian situation, with 5.38 million internally displaced persons (IDPs), and 14.6 million people in need of humanitarian assistance, according to the latest figures provided by the 2022 Humanitarian Needs Overview (HNO).

iMMAP has been assisting humanitarian actors responding to the Syria crisis since 2011, focusing on providing critical information management support, including research and analysis, to coordination actors and operational partners. Such assistance contributes to enhancing the Whole-of-Syria approach, leading to better identification of the needs and gaps in humanitarian assistance.


Information Management Resource Center
Funded by United States Agency for International Development and the Swiss Development Cooperation and in partnership with OCHA, the IMRC was launched to support the Whole of Syria structure with information management, coordination and capacity building services. Specifically, IMRC aims to enhance information management and reporting capacity of Syrian and international NGOs responding to the Syria crisis through the provision of change management and common services, coordination support, capacity building and an internship program.
Syria ECHO project: Returns Context Monitoring, COVID-19 Emergency Coordination, and Mine Action Coordination in Syria
iMMAP and the EU collaborate to protect the most vulnerable Syrians by enhancing emergency programs through coordination and evidence-based information. The project has three components: analyzing drivers and barriers of return for forcibly displaced people through context monitoring, COVID-19 emergency coordination and humanitarian mine action coordination in Syria.

The context monitoring is run from the Amman office and aims to fill information gaps concerning the barriers to safe and secure returns for displaced Syrians, provide a dedicated coordination capacity to sustain the ongoing COVID-19 response in parts of Syria, and provide and maintain a comprehensive picture of explosive hazard contamination. The other two components are run from Erbil (Kurdish Region in Iraq) and Amuda (northeast Syria).
