New Picture (4)This profile prepared by UN-Habitat provides a spotlight into 9 neighbourhoods of the Old City and 3 adjacent neighbourhoods. It builds on the Homs City Profile prepared in May 2014. The objective of this Profile is to provide a snapshot of the situation, emergency issues and future implications that the UN and humanitarian community can take into account.

Issues emerging in the old city of Homs can also be anticipated in other affected cities and urban centres of Syria for humanitarian response.
