Refugee Camp

Only USD744 million of the Jordan Response Plan’s (JRP) total of USD2.432 billion was made available by the international community last year, according to Ministry of Planning and International Cooperation’s (MoPIC) figures.

With only 30.6 percent of the total finances needed, the deficit now totals USD1.687 billion which is 69.4 percent of the total required, the ministry revealed.

The amount secured by JRP was used to support refugees (USD538 million out of the original USD617 million required), host communities (USD136 million out of USD192 million required), and infrastructure and institutional capacity-building (USD55 million out of USD412 million required).

While a new item, response to the COVID-19 pandemic, received USD14 million out of USD261 million needed for the plan.

The “state’s treasury support” item received zero financing last year, even though the required amount was USD948 million, according to the data.

The sub-areas of spending of the total amount collected were as follows:

  • Healthcare: USD126 million
  • Economic empowerment: USD260 million
  • Education: USD47 million
  • Social protection and justice: USD272 million
  • Public services USD13 million
  • Shelter: USD13 million
  • Sanitation services: USD13 million

The Federal Republic of Germany was the largest financier of the plan with USD179 million, followed by the US USD173 million), multilateral funds USD71 million, and EU Regional Trust Fund in Response to the Syrian Crisis “Madad” (USD50 million).

In 2020, the plan’s financing amounted to approximately USD11.11 billion, out of USD2.24 billion, with a financing rate of 49.4 percent.
