This “Needs Assessment Review” was initiated based on the general consensus within the international community that the Syrian conflict has turned into a protracted crisis, with profound long-term implications on neighboring countries, in particular Jordan and Lebanon. The report is the first step towards assisting the Government of Jordan in formulating the National Resilience Plan as a 3-year investment plan for resilience-based interventions in host communities. This is aimed at complementing the on-going humanitarian response by a more sustainable and development-oriented response.

This “Needs Assessment Review” report aims at providing a resilience-based reading of the impact of the Syrian crisis in Jordan. It undertakes an in-depth analysis of the pre-crisis and present status of major sectors and subsectors, including health, education, livelihood, municipal services and water. It goes on to identify possible options to support the Government of Jordan to efficiently, effectively and sustainably steer and manage its response to the crisis.

The review was coordinated by the Host Communities Support Platform Secretariat, and was conducted during 20 October-10 November 2013 with the participation of UN agencies, and in close consultation, coordination and cooperation with relevant line ministries, donors, and key international and national NGOs. A team of technical experts was deployed by UN agencies to support the preparation of the sector specific assessments. The team benefited from available data, reports and studies and technical consultation meetings with the sector Task Forces and other relevant institutions.
