Syria: UNHCR Operational Update, December 2022

General

The Syria crisis is currently in its twelfth year. The UN estimates that 15.3 million people need humanitarian assistance across the country, a 5 per cent increase from the previous year.

The security situation in parts of the country is unpredictable and the economic situation is increasingly dire. Economic deterioration is a major driver of needs.

UNHCR provides protection and assistance to refugees, asylumseekers, internally displaced people, returnees, stateless people and host community members based on their identified needs and vulnerabilities.
