The Joint Rapid Assessment in Aleppo City (henceforth referred to as Aleppo City Assessment, or ACA) was undertaken over a two-week period in March 2013. The key purpose of the ACA was to provide strategic information on needs, key affected population groups, priority sectors for intervention and to determine where assistance is reaching people.
The assessment was coordinated by the Assessment Working Group (AWG) for northern Syria. The assessment was a collaborative effort between a range of humanitarian actors, supported by ECHO, DFID and OFDA and facilitated by the Assistance Coordination Unit (ACU). International needs assessment and GIS experts provided technical support.
