|Improving Urban Resilience in Cities Impacted by the Syrian Refugee Crisis in Jordan
$500,000 01/2017 - 06/2018
This project aims to use hazard risk profiling to inform improvements in overall urban resilience in cities in Jordan that have been affected by the Syrian refugee crisis. It will leverage work underway by UNHABITAT and other partners to map the risk profiles of municipalities. It will also undertake additional assessments of the overall social cohesion, governance systems, fiscal, infrastructure, and service delivery in selected municipalities. Project activities will help develop and implement local emergency and risk management plans. The goal is to mitigate critical natural and man-made risks and vulnerabilities to internal and external shocks tied to social cohesion, governance, service delivery, economic, and fiscal dynamics. Based on results, the project will also identify adjustments and investments necessary to improve living conditions for both host communities and refugees in these cities.
