Turkey 2017–2018 / Syria crisis

This case study presents the assistants to Syrian tenants and local host community households in south-east Turkey with rehabilitation and upgrade works and written landlord agreements. It was one of the first shelter interventions in the area and was mainly implemented via contractors, with only a small conditional cash component for lighter repairs. Upgrades included the installation of walled partitions with locks, improved lighting, repairs of water and sanitation facilities, sealing of exposed roofs and walls, and thermal insulation. The project also provided training, tools and job opportunities for refugees and host community members
