Community empowerment strengthens resilience of Syrian Refugees in Jordan
Timeline: 2012 to date
Strengthening the resilience of Syrian refugees in Jordan empowers them to secure their land-based livelihoods, and to acquire farming skills for securing their food security and family incomes. SEEDS has established an informal refugee camp that gives Syrian refugees an opportunity to engage in agriculture and secure their land-based livelihoods. They have brought together Syrian and Jordanian communities, creating safe social spaces for dialogue, cohesion and knowledge sharing. The program aims to address economic vulnerability, placing local communities at the forefront of Jordan’s response to the Syrian crisis, with a long-term view of strengthening the resilience of the refugees.
