Since the onset of the Syria crisis in 2011, more than 1.3 million Syrians have settled in Jordan (14% of its population), including more than 665,000 registered refugees, live in urban areas (81.6%), while the remaining reside in three refugee camps across the country. Jordan hosts other refugee populations as well: 67,680 Iraqis, and over 20,000 in total, from Sudan, Somalia, and Yemen, registered with UNHCR. The protracted nature of the crisis has caused a tremendous strain on public resources (such as infrastructure, education and health), has deepened poverty levels (85% of refugees are below the poverty line), and it has increased the existing needs and vulnerabilities of community members, particularly in terms of protection and livelihood.
