With the Syria conflict entering its seventh year, Jordan keeps hosting unprecedented numbers of Syrian nationals. According to the latest Census data, their number is 1.266 million, including 655,000 UNHCR registered refugees. Around 80 per cent of Syrian refugees have settled in host communities while the remaining lives in camps.

Hosting such a high number of foreign nationals in need, and accommodating their needs, has been putting critical pressure on the ability of the Jordanian social, economic, institutional and natural resources systems to cope and provide the needed assistance.

The Government has taken a leadership role in seeking to mitigate the consequences of the crisis on Jordan by bringing existing refugee, resilience-strengthening and development responses to the Syria crisis in Jordan under one integrated planning and coordination framework: the Jordan Response Platform for the Syria Crisis (JRPSC).

The JRPSC, which is chaired by the Ministry of Planning and International Cooperation (MOPIC), constitutes the strategic partnership mechanism between the Government, donors, UN agencies and international NGOs for the preparation, implementation and monitoring of an integrated humanitarian and development response to the Syria crisis: the Jordan Response Plan for the Syria Crisis (JRP).

In this context, the Joint Project Document (JPD) UN Joint Support to the Jordan National Response to the Syria Crisis – Phase I was approved in December 2014 to ensure high-quality, timely and efficient delivery of technical and policy support to the JRPSC and MOPIC. A dedicated JRPSC Secretariat has been established within MOPIC through this project with the overall objective of strengthening the capacity of the Government of Jordan to effectively respond to the impact of the Syria crisis on the country.

In the framework of this overall objective, the JPD specific objective is to strengthen MOPIC capacity to lead Government of Jordan’s response to the Syria crisis through policy advice, strategic planning, aid coordination, monitoring and evaluation, information management and advocacy. This is done in close cooperation with the Humanitarian Relief Coordination Unit (HRCU), which is MOPIC’s entity in charge of coordinating the Syria crisis response.

Technical and financial proposals along with CV & 3 references should be submitted, and without such will not be considered).
