Established in 2012 NRC Jordan’s long-term outlook addresses the problems affecting life as a refugee. We work to build the resilience of Syrians, and to relieve the impact on the Jordanian communities that host them. Syrian refugees in Jordan are struggling. As they contend with difficult living conditions across the country, the obstacles are complex. They struggle to remain registered as refugees, to provide for their families, and to access essential services – including education for their children. The Jordanian communities that host them, meanwhile, feel the impact of hosting high numbers of refugees – with each year that passes, local infrastructure becomes more strained.
The main objectives for the consultancy include:
- The study will help the Jordan INGO Forum (JIF) understand whether the Refugee Response Plan (JRP) actors are satisfied with the current planning framework and response, and what adjustments could be made for INGOs to have the greatest impact.
- the study will help in the context of the humanitarian-development nexus conversation, it will assess whether Jordan has a plan/framework that comprehensively responds to the situation the country faces and the needs of vulnerable people, with a particular focus on the ‘one-refugee approach’ (addressing the needs of all refugees, no matter their origin).
- The study will also suggest how to improve the current Refugee Response Plan (JRP) vulnerability analysis, and consider whether the traditional Humanitarian Need Overview framework could be used as a methodology. By providing a template for analysis for 2 sectors identified with Jordan INGO Forum (JIF), it will also include perspectives from refugees and host communities.
- The consultant will produce a final report based on the abovementioned, including conclusions, recommendations and present it to Jordan INGO Forum (JIF) at the end of the consultancy.
