REACH conducted this assessment in close consultation with the Inter-sector Coordination Group and the Assessment Working Group for Northern Syria as well as local humanitarian partners and NGO coordination platforms. Funded by the Office of U.S. Foreign Disaster Assistance (OFDA), the assessment aimed to address an information gap regarding the humanitarian and displacement situation in Aleppo City. This report provides first an overview of population displacement within and out of the area between January 2014 and early May, as well as estimates of the remaining population as of late April 2014. Second, this report also presents an analysis of levels of damage to public and private infrastructures. Third, focusing on the humanitarian situation in terms of electricity, water, and health in eastern Aleppo, REACH highlights new findings, and argues that deficiencies in these three sectors are significantly worsening the humanitarian situation in eastern Aleppo.
