Coping with fluctuating levels of humanitarian assistance, exhausted savings and limited access to legal livelihood opportunities Syrian refugees have been struggling to provide for themselves and their families. Meanwhile, Jordanian host communities have been coping with the consequences of a population increase and resulting intensification of competition over scarce resources and livelihoods opportunities, which have made it increasingly difficult for vulnerable Jordanians to make ends meet.
