CARE’s 2015 needs assessment of urban Syria refugees in Jordan provides an updated picture of these challenges, the refugees’ priorities and coping mechanisms and a view of refugee community-host relations. It builds upon 2014, 2013 and 2012 assessments to create a picture over time, establishing some trends and helping to understand how
conditions for Syrian refugees and their hosts are changing. In line with CARE’s Gender in Emergency approach, its analysis highlights that the experience of war and displacement is impacting men, women, boys, and girls differently.

This summary report outlines the main findings of CARE’s assessment report. The report is based on data collected from January 27 to March 1, 2015 in interviews with 1,300 families and focus group discussions and individual interviews with Syrian and Jordanian women, men, and male and female youth, and other stakeholders (CARE team members and
representatives of local authorities and response actors)
