STORYLINE:

4.5 million people in north-west Syria are bracing to survive winter after a year marked by earthquakes, acute food shortages, and heightened hostilities.

In 2023, the UN and its partners reach 2.5 million people on average each month with assistance, but chronic underfunding is threatening the response. Funding for food assistance has dropped by 50 percent this year. With less than two months until 2024, the Humanitarian Response Plan for Syria is only a third funded.

IOM, OCHA, UNDSS, UNHCR and WFP participated in the interagency visit.
