The Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan hosts 1.4m Syrians, of which 656,198 are registered with UNHCR as refugees as of August 2016, the majority of whom have found refuge in host communities across Jordan, rather than official refugee camps. In host communities, the consequences of such a protracted displacement situation are considerable and have posed challenges for both Syrian refugees and Jordanian hosts. 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.

Since March 2011, the internal armed conflict in Syria has displaced more than 4 million people within Syria and forced another 1.5 million to seek refuge in neighboring countries.

With a projected 80% of the Syrian refugees living outside camps by the end of 2014, the increasing pressure on limited resources in the ‘poverty pockets’ of northern Jordan is likely to heighten tensions between host communities and refugees if programs are not implemented to solve some of the immediate needs across sectors. One priority concern expressed by many participants in the northern regions is a dramatic increase in the cost of basic commodities such as food, rent, clothing and fuel. This is perceived as a direct consequence of the Syrian refugee crisis. Some families reported finding it difficult to provide their children with sufficient meals.
