Focusing on post-conflict humanitarian and development interventions related to Housing, Land and Property (HLP), this guidance note provides practical assistance for performing due diligence as UN actors undertake land-based interventions in the Syrian context.
This note takes an operational approach to due diligence guidance by describing due diligence procedure and then making key operational due diligence recommendations for six specific activities and interventions which involve a strong HLP component.
This guidance note is intended to advise UN actors and agencies as well as select international and national NGOs undertaking projects or programmes related to housing, land and property in Syria. It is especially relevant for development actors planning to undertake any of the HLP interventions discussed in this Guidance Note. Furthermore, the guidance note is addressed to UN agencies benefitting from government or private land allocation for uses such as housing, storage and training centres.
