The objective is to support cities impacted by the Syrian refugee crisis in Jordan with a focus on improving urban resilience and addressing both pre-existing and new vulnerabilities arising due to various risk factors. This grant is implemented in response to the unprecedented and rapid
influx of Syrian refugees into Jordan’s towns and cities, resulting in
increased exposure of urban areas (and its citizens) to various risks including
natural hazards, service delivery deterioration and increased pressure on
infrastructure, economic and fiscal shocks, and social tensions between host
communities and refugees. The grant will be implemented by assessment reports, situation analyses, knowledge exchange events, reports and workshops.
