    Since the end of January 2019, southern Idleb and northern Hama governorates have seen a significant escalation of conflict. Shelling and airstrikes intensified in the area, leading to a deterioration of the humanitarian situation. In response, REACH conducted a rapid needs assessment to provide actors with an update on the humanitarian situation. The latest conflict escalation affects an area that is home to an estimated 700,000 residents and internally displaced persons (IDPs), increasing vulnerability, and in some cases, leading to secondary and tertiary displacements. From late 2017, the region has witnessed a large-scale influx of IDPs, following escalations of conflict and displacements from formerly opposition-held areas in south-east Idleb, south-west Aleppo, Rural Damascus, Homs, Hama, Dar’a and Quneitra governorates. The increase in IDP population in Idleb governorate and surrounding areas has led to a growing strain on resources and an increase in inter-communal tensions in the region. Further complicating the situation, there has been increasing concern regarding a potential military offensive in the region since September 2018, with shelling and airstrikes occurring with increased frequency. While the mid-September 2018 announcement of a demilitarised zone put a pause on concerns over an imminent military offensive in the region, clashes have continued unabated. Data for this assessment was collected from 25-26 February 2019 in 85 opposition-controlled communities in 12 sub-districts via community-level key informant (KI) interviews. KIs were asked to report on the previous week (18 to 25 February). This dataset provides the findings for indicators on demographics, shelter, food, livelihoods, electricity & NFIs, WASH, health, education, protection, reported priority needs, and reported movement intentions.
