Comprehensive Vulnerability Assessment 2015
With the Syrian conflict in its fifth year, Jordan is hosting an unprecedented number of Syrian refugees. This complex and protracted conflict—which has potentially destabilizing effects for Jordan—requires an updated assessment of Syria crisis-related vulnerabilities, needs and priorities as the basis for a well informed and evidence-based Jordan Response Plan 2016-2018.
The use of different vulnerability criteria among national and international stakeholders in Jordan has generated challenges in the analysis and interpretation of data and information, thereby limiting Jordan’s capacity to gain a comprehensive picture of Syria crisis-related vulnerabilities. In addition, many vulnerability measurements focus on hazards and risks rather than on capacities for addressing them providing only part of the full picture of vulnerability.
Needs Assessment Review 2014
To remain griped of the full spectrum of refugee and resilience related needs resulting as a consequence of the ongoing crisis, this updated Needs Assessment Review (NAR) was prepared to supersede the 2013 NAR report. It has been conducted through the mechanism of the Jordan Response Platform for the Syria Crisis (JRPSC), and considers the following twelve sectors: education, energy, environment, health, justice, livelihoods and food security, local governance and municipal services, shelter, social protection, transport and WASH.
It is intended that the systematic collection, collation and pooling of data into a single comprehensive updated NAR will permit better planning and informed prioritization of projects brought forward for financing in the JRP, which in turn must necessarily succeed in directing resources to those populations, communities and services facing the greatest needs or range of needs.
Needs Assessment Review 2013
The Needs Assessment Review 2013 aims at providing a resilience-based reading of the impact of the Syria crisis in Jordan. It undertakes an in-depth analysis of the pre-crisis and present status of major sectors and subsectors, including health, education, livelihood, municipal services and water. It goes on to identify possible options to support the Government of Jordan to efficiently, effectively and sustainably steer and manage its response to the crisis.
The review was coordinated by the JRPSC - previously the Host Community Support Platform - and was conducted during 20 October-10 November 2013 with the participation of UN agencies, and in close consultation, coordination and cooperation with relevant line ministries, donors, and key international and national NGOs.
