SITUATION ANALYSIS

During 2016 water continued to be used as a weapon of war. On approximately 30 dierent occasions, water infrastructure and water supply were directly attacked or deliberately turned o as a tactic of war. Major cities like Aleppo and Damascus suered water shortages due to those tactics in addition to lack of maintenance and damage to the water systems. Limitations in the water network supply have resulted in almost 50 per cent of the population meeting the majority of their water needs from alternative sources, including costly commercial water trucking and unsafe open wells
