Brief Summary Description of Project:
Since 2006 Mercy Corps has been working in Jordan to address causes of tension with infrastructure support (e.g. rehabilitation of water, schools, and health clinics) and promote social cohesion by developing stronger communities by equipping community leaders, civil society actors including youth and community-based organizations (CBOs) , and local government representatives with the skills necessary to identify and respond to sources of tension, whilst facilitating positive interactions and collaboration.
The influx of more than 635,324 registered Syrian refugees is one of the greatest challenges facing Jordan today. Given the protracted nature of the Syrian war, the Syrian refugee crisis is likely to remain an ongoing and potentially permanent challenge for the Jordanian economy and social landscape. More than 80% of Syrians refugees live among host communities, rather than in official refugee camps. This has placed an enormous strain on the country, and its youth in particular, as they struggle to find jobs and economic opportunities in a context of rising prices. This is compounded by poor or expensive access to housing, water, energy, healthcare, education, and growing dissatisfaction with local government public services.
The quality of life in host communities most affected by the Syrian refugee crisis is declining, particularly in so-called poverty pockets that were impoverished even before the crisis began (both rural and urban). As a consequence, public infrastructure including schools, health centers, roads, and water and wastewater networks are overwhelmed.
