The security situation in North-West Syria deteriorated during December 2019. The escalation in violence has resulted in the mass displacement of civilians towards northern areas near the Syrian-Turkish border. Reportedly, the majority (about 68%) of the displaced people settled in urban areas, while the most vulnerable people, about 32% of the newly displaced, resorted to settle in camps and collective centers.

The CCCM Cluster has prepared this document to facilitate site planning and proposals development by focusing on the most essential elements of camp construction/extension process and by providing the required technical support in accordance to international standards.
