ECHO And WFP Provide Food Vouchers To Syrian Refugees In Jordan

More than 2 million people have fled Syria since the conflict began. WFP is assisting around half a million refugees in Jordan, including 80,000 in the Zaatari refugee camp, just 10 km from the border with Syria.

Overview

Jordan is a resource-poor, food-deficit country with limited agricultural land, no energy resources and scarce water supply. While the country has made progress in socio-economic development and poverty alleviation, unemployment and inflation remain fundamental problems. Jordan’s economic situation has deteriorated drastically over the past five years. The repercussions of the global food, fuel and financial crisis have eroded most of the economic gains the country has made. The high volatility of the regional political context places extra burden on Jordan.
