Several assessments have been carried out by UN agencies, non-governmental and local organisations to guide humanitarian operations in host communities and in camp settings. In the host community, it is challenging to have a comprehensive understanding of the needs of refugees who are settled in disparate areas and have varying levels of vulnerabilities. Adding to this knowledge base will improve the ability of humanitarian actors to assist refugees and vulnerable Jordanians in host communities.

This desk review brings together the work undertaken by humanitarian actors in various assessments from 2012-2013 and aims to present a synthesis and analysis of the needs of Syrian refugee children in Jordan, in an evidence-based manner. It puts children’s needs at the centre of this evidence and also attempts to illuminate where more research is required.
