This update is a coordination tool to improve communication between sectors and up to the Inter-Agency Task Force (IATF). It focuses on processes, rather than achievements. The latter are covered through separate monthly sector dashboards, available through the inter-agency portal and at http://data.unhcr.org/jordan/sectors/

I. General / Inter-Sector Update

3RP 2016 Annual Report: The Inter-Sector Working Group (ISWG) has been involved in preparation of the 2016 Annual Report for the 3RP (Regional Refugee and Resilience Plan), which is available at http://data.unhcr.org/syrianrefugees/regional.php In total, 58 agencies and NGOs participated in the 2016 Inter-Agency Appeal in Jordan, receiving 64% of the requested funds for both Refugee and Resilience components. The Refugee component in Food Security, Health, WASH and Education have been well funded in 2016. However, three sectors (Basic Needs, Protection and Shelters) received insufficient funding. Due to a USD $51 million funding shortfall in the Basic Needs Sector, at least 11,000 families were kept on the waiting list and unable to receive monthly cash assistance. The Protection Sector was underfunded by USD $29 million, resulting in reduced outreach and sensitization on SGBV and referral pathways, with over 256,000 individuals not reached. A USD $10 million funding shortfall for urban shelter projects resulted in more than 9,300 households not receiving assistance to upgrade substandard dwellings.

2017 ISWG Work Plan: The ISWG 2017 Work Plan, focusing on common practices, including the Vulnerability Assessment Framework, coordinated needs assessments and implementation of IM tools, is finalized. See at http://data.unhcr.org/syrianrefugees/working_group.php?Page=Country&LocationId=107&Id=60
