Emergency Operation Syria 200339

This Operation has been modified  as per Budget revision 13 (see below).

Milling of wheat has been replaced with procurement of wheat flour. Therefore shunting costs etc related to the milling process have been removed.

• The use of the comparatively expensive Jordan overland corridor has been minimised in favour of increased use of cheaper alternatives (as capacity on these alternative corridors has been steadily built up)

• Related to the above, the warehouse in Irbid (Jordan) has now been closed

• Costs related to an overland corridor to north-east Syria from Iraq have been removed as this corridor is no longer open

• Joint planning with Procurement has resulted in the roll-out of Supply Agreements in Mersin (Turkey) thereby negating the need for a logistics staging area/warehousing in Mersin. These costs have therefore been removed from the matrix

• New inland and overland contracts have been awarded with new (in many cases lower) rates

• A new warehouse/packaging facility has been opened in Homs (Syria) to serve two governorates that were previously served from other packaging facilities

Progressively increase the number of target beneficiaries from 2.5 million to 4 million, in accordance with increasing needs;

Syria was hit by the wave of civil unrest known as the 'Arab Spring' in mid-March and the security situation has since deteriorated. To date, the number of deaths is nearing 2,000 civilians and 500 security personnel, as reported by media and human rights organizations.
