The population of Al-Hassakeh governorate has been increasingly vulnerable and has slipped into poverty. The humanitarian situation in Al-Hassakeh continues to deteriorate as it hosts over 350,000 IDPs from neighboring governorates. It hosts IDPs in addition to returning migrants who left during the drought only to return fleeing violence. Currently, Al-Hassakeh governorate is home to half a million persons, of whom 258,000 are IDPs from neighboring Deir-ez-Zor, Ar-Raqqa and Aleppo, who are in critical need for livelihood support.
