Year-end Overview

Plan Overview

Working environment

Jordan has a strong tradition of generosity towards refugees, from neighbouring countries and beyond. Since the onset of the Syria crisis, the pressure on Jordan’s resources and infrastructure has been mounting; this has the potential to undermine the harmonious coexistence between refugees and hosting communities. While Jordan is not a signatory to the 1951 Refugee Convention, an MoU covers cooperation between UNHCR and the Government of Jordan on refugee and asylum-seeker issues.
 
The challenge of maintaining asylum space in a complex political context remains.  In 2020, there will be a greater focus on the social inclusion of refugees, the sustainability of programmes and their alignment with national social protection schemes. UNHCR continues to coordinate the refugee response with the Government.  In 2020, the Government will continue to lead the Jordan Response Plan (JRP) with close support from UNHCR. Due to the evolving situation in Jordan along the humanitarian development nexus, there is a recognized need to make the JRP more inclusive and complementary to the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and Jordan’s National Plan, which aims to leave no one behind.
 
UNHCR’s assistance to people of concern will focus on protection, cash assistance, livelihoods, health care, camp management and community mobilization, with an emphasis on vulnerability-based targeting. UNHCR’s multipurpose cash assistance strategy will be a key component of the comprehensive protection response for those living in urban areas. UNHCR will strengthen its partnerships with national actors, while shifting to more comprehensive community-based protection interventions including mobile helpdesks, mobile registration, communication groups.
 
UNHCR will continue to support the Government as it works to achieve the objectives set out by the Jordan Compact in February 2016, focusing on education and coordinating stakeholders’ efforts in the livelihood sector, advocating increased flexibility when issuing work permits and providing space for refugees to be economically active. UNHCR will also facilitate durable solutions through traditional resettlement opportunities and expanding complementary pathways where possible, despite challenges in the global resettlement environment.

Key priorities

  • Advocating access to territory, the right to seek asylum, the principles of non-refoulement, family unity, and access to livelihood opportunities.
  • Supporting the Government to provide security and protection to people of concern, in accordance with international refugee protection principles, through capacity-building initiatives.
  • Providing multi-sectoral assistance to refugees in camps; promoting access to primary healthcare and referrals for urban refugees as well as multi-purpose cash assistance for the most vulnerable.
  • Advocating and employing the “one refugee” approach in programming.
