Food Security and Livelihood Assessment in Syria - Brochure

About this Project

With support from the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) and RFSAN, the Whole of Syria Food Security Cluster conducted a Food Security & Livelihood Assessment (FSLA) throughout most of Syria aimed at understanding the challenges faced by households and communities, particularly in the agricultural sector.

The results of this mixed methods approach assessment serve as a reminder of the continued trend towards diminished livelihoods opportunities and greater food insecurity as the conflict has become protracted. Analysis shows that livelihoods further eroded throughout the year prior to the assessment, with households reporting lower wages, fewer high-quality income-generating opportunities, increasing debts, and a need for aid that exceeds what is currently provided.

Other key findings include: households engaged in agriculture were more resilient, and many households abandoned farming and herding.
