Project justification and rational: 

  • As the conflict enters its tenth year, Syria remains one of the most complex and dynamic humanitarian crises in the world today. Since March 2011, more than 800,000 Syrians have lost their lives and over one million have been injured. Close to 5 million Syrians have been forced to leave the country, and 6.3 million are internally displaced, making Syria the largest displacement crisis globally.
  • Over 50% of Syrians are unemployed (75% among youth), and 69% of the population lives in extreme poverty, with less than 2$ a day. Widespread disruption of income-generating activities, destruction of infrastructure and public sector jobs, repeated shocks, and multiple displacements have contributed to dangerously high levels of unemployment and reliance on harmful coping strategies to meet basic needs, including depleting savings, selling productive assets, borrowing money, and reducing consumption of food and non-food items. Coupled with inflated prices and fluctuating exchange rates, Syrian households' (HHs) purchasing power is severely weakened, limiting their capacity to meet their basic needs, leading to a majority of Syrian HHs having to rely on negative coping strategies to meet survival needs which can be damaging, unsafe, exploitative or undermine future income earning potential. Administratively, Tal Abyad as sub-district under Tal Abyad district. 

The area of our prospective project:

  • The total number of populations in Tal Abyad sub-district was 4467 1inhabitants according to the Syrian Central Statistical Office in 2004. In August 2020 the number was 28706 inhabitants, 2780 of them were IDPs based on data that collected by the Humanitarian Needs Assessment Programmer (HNAP). There is a clear need to support the internally displaced people (IDPs) and host communities in Syria through providing agricultural inputs and livestock to improve their living conditions, as efforts to rebuild their livelihoods and promote their resilience. This intervention will contribute to providing livestock (poultry) to support livelihood on a small scale and Providing agricultural inputs (winter vegetable cultivation) in Tal Abyad. Thus, those vulnerable people would be able to promote their resilience, strengthen their self-dependence, improve their live conditions, restore their assets, and enhance their food security.

Project description:
