Humanitarian assistance is a crucial element in the welfare of many refugee households in Jordan. The expansion of the response to include longer term, resilience based strategies, led by the Government of Jordan through the Jordan Response Plan (JRP), is also an important step in strengthening both Jordanian and refugee communities’ capacities to cope with the crisis.

In parallel, humanitarian agencies are committed to ensuring that assistance is efficient and effective, targeting the most vulnerable areas and households. To facilitate this targeting, the humanitarian community in Jordan has developed the Vulnerability Assessment Framework (VAF). This summary outlines the findings of a Baseline Survey designed to identify the multi-sectoral vulnerabilities of Syrian non-camp based refugees registered with UNHCR in Jordan.
