The first J-RANS was implemented in January 2013 and covered 45% of 6 northern Governorates. This was followed by a similar assessment in the city of Aleppo in March 2013. This second Joint Rapid Assessment in Northern Syria (J- RANS II), undertaken during March - April 2013, covered 69% of 7 governorates to:

  • Update information of J-RANS I by revisiting same areas
  • Increase understanding of needs by visiting areas not covered in J-RANS I
  • Provide strategic information on needs, key affected populations, and priority sectors for intervention
  • Determine the extent of assistance reaching people as well as humanitarian constraints.

This assessment was a collaborative effort among humanitarian actors, supported by ECHO, DFID and USAID/OFDA, facilitated by the Assistance Coordination Unit (ACU), and by needs assessment and GIS experts.
