Perceptions of affected communities
While the crisis has affected all people living in Syria to varying degrees, some segments of the population and locations have been more acutely affected than others. The most severe needs across multiple sectors are concentrated in areas of ongoing conflict or areas with large numbers of IDPs. Of the estimated 13.1 million people in need across Syria, 5.6 million people are experiencing acute needs. This refers to people in need living in areas where the overall levels of need are considered to have reached catastrophic, critical or severe levels.
