Humanitarian funding to Jordan will fall

Friday, November 25, 2022

Significance

While donors increasingly favour development assistance, Jordan still requires emergency humanitarian aid for the near-3 million resident refugees and migrants. Amman worries that socio-economic strains will increase if Syrians, like Palestinians, stay for years to come.

Impacts

  • The government will stress that the international community has responsibility for Syrian refugees, whose conditions are unsustainable.
  • International humanitarian agencies already in Jordan may reduce their services but will continue to advocate that a solution be found.
  • Humanitarian support to Jordan will decrease, and traditional Western donors will not be replaced by other donors.
