As the Syrian crisis extends into its fourth year, the number of refugees in Jordan continues to increase with the vast majority living in communities outside of refugee camps. With the support of REACH, the World Food Programme (WFP) carried out a Comprehensive Food Security Monitoring Exercise (CFSME) throughout all twelve governorates of Jordan and in Za’atri Refugee Camp in December 2013 and January 2014 in order to assess the vulnerabilities, food security situations and living conditions of the UNHCR registered Syrian refugee population in Jordan.

Populations Targeted

1,500,000 Syrian refugees
1,500,000 Affected Lebanese
55,000 Palestine refugees from Syria
50,000 Lebanese returnees

Consequences of Underfunding

With a 50% reduction in funding, many refugees and vulnerable Lebanese will be forced to resort to harmful behaviour to survive, such as child labour, survival sex, early marriage, skipping meals and begging.
