Kurzbeschreibung:

Projektziel


The project aims to achieve improved and sustainable shelter solutions for refugees and vulnerable host community members, particularly women, enhancing individuals' standards of living and contributing to the overall shelter situation in Jordan.


Erwartete Ergebnisse


1) Increased security of tenure – particularly for women at-risk, persons with disabilities (PWDs), and those with specific vulnerabilities – through emergency cash assistance in the host community;

2) Refugee and vulnerable Jordanian women in the host community are equipped and supported to rehabilitate shelters in their communities;

3) Shelters in Azraq Camp are safer, more dignified, and accessible through new shelter construction and upgrades to existing shelters with support of camp-based refugees.


Zielgruppe


The project targets 2,785 women, girls, boys and men.


Location: Jordan, Amman; Irbid; Karak, Zarqa (Azraq Refugee Camp)


Maßnahmen

2) Securing tenure via emergency cash assistance including emergency cash-for-rent and cash-for-utilities assistance;

3) Women-led sustainable shelter solutions in the host community, including vocational training in shelter rehabilitation fields, business trainings, business grants and peer support groups for women; and shelter rehabilitation works for vulnerable Households (HH);

4) Filling shelter gaps in new construction, rehabilitation, and accessibility in Azraq Camp, including shelter rehabilitation in the camp with a special focus on accessibility for PWDs.


Hintergrundinformation


With a population of 11.3 million, Jordan hosts 730,658 registered refugees, including 653,292 Syrians, 57,957 Iraqis, 12,767 Yemenis, 4,999 Sudanese, 508 Somalis, and 1,135 of other nationalities, alongside thousands more unregistered refugees. Recent cuts in humanitarian assistance and government subsidies have led to increased needs among vulnerable groups. This disproportionately affects women, particularly women at-risk, households with persons with disabilities (PWDs), and other vulnerable populations, such as non-Syrian refugees. Increased shelter needs are both present in the refugee population and the host community. While vulnerable host community members are facing evictions, resorting to negative coping strategies or having their health compromised due to mold, flooding or issues with the sewage system, refugees in Azraq Camp require repaired or new shelters as their current ones are at risk of flooding, particularly in the winter, and infestations by rodents and vectors, among other threats. Furthermore, insufficient shelters increase the risk of gender-based violence (GBV) and a higher transmission of diseases and infections.


Through this project, vulnerable households’ immediate needs will be addressed through emergency cash assistance and shelter rehabilitation work in Jordan's host community and Azraq Refugee Camp. Further, vulnerable refugee and Jordanian women will be equipped with the knowledge, skills, and resources to repair shelters and earn their own income. This will result in improved shelter stock in targeted communities and households will have a more secure place to live and be less dependent on negative coping mechanisms. Further, vulnerable women working in shelter rehabilitation fields will be self-reliant to meet their own, and contribute to Jordan's, ongoing shelter needs.
