Project Description
The project development objective is to help Jordanian municipalities and host communities address the immediate service delivery impacts of Syrian refugee inflows and strengthen municipal capacity to support local economic development. The proposed project will improve living conditions in select Jordanian cities and towns highly affected by Syrian refugee inflows and promote broader crisis resilience through three elements: support to participating municipalities to provide additional services based on local needs, the strengthening of community resilience through local economic development and community engagement, and the strengthening of institutional resilience to crises through development of emergency response and disaster preparedness plans at different levels of government. The project will initially support nine municipalities most affected by Syrian refugee inflows. These municipalities will receive multipronged support based on the extent of refugees accommodated. Based on Public Disclosure Authorized Public Disclosure Authorized Public Disclosure Authorized Public Disclosure Authorized ground conditions and emerging needs, the project may include additional municipalities or eliminate existing ones in the future. The project will be implemented over a period of 38 months. It will comprise two components: (i) Municipal Grants; and (ii) Institutional Development and Project Management.
