Situation

In March 2013, the UN reported that up to 70,000 people have died as Syria is now entering its third year of civil war. More than 1.1 million refugees have fled to neighbouring countries such as Turkey, Lebanon, Jordan and Iraq. Increasing numbers are also reaching Egypt. Two million people have been internally displaced and around 4 million are in need of humanitarian assistance.

Solution

MapAction's information includes number of people displaced, where they have been displaced to, what shelter is available and where, and what their needs are. This and additional information will be used by humanitarian organisations serving people affected by the conflict.
