Syria remains a complex humanitarian situation, with 6.1 million internally displaced persons (IDPs), and 11.1 million people in need of humanitarian assistance, according to the latest figures recorded by the United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (UNOCHA).

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.

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.
