AKF – Case study on CVA-Related Risks in Government Controlled Areas in Syria

This case study was commissioned by the Agha Khan Foundation (AKF) with ECHO support, in order to contribute to better awareness on CVA-related risks and mitigation strategies by drawing on lessons learnt from existing humanitarian projects using CVA in Syria Government-controlled areas. The context was particularly interesting as few humanitarian actors have managed to start and even scale up the use of CVA to deliver emergency response despite the challenging context and major operational risks to intervene. This case study shed light on the learnings drawn from this experience in order to inform response option analysis in other challenging contexts and ultimately support the more systematic consideration of CVA.

The methodology relied on qualitative data collection and analysis.
