The policy brief presents challenges in the WASH sector in urban refugee-hosting areas and suggests technical and policy recommendations to accommodate the influx of Syrian refugees in Jordan, based on a research study conducted in Dahiyet Al Malek Abdallah in Al Mafraq Governorate.

The policy brief is one output of the project titled “The Urban Refugee Dividend - Rethinking Humanitarian Aid as Urban WASH Investment - JURD”, a collaboration between engineers and researchers from the WANA Institute, The International Institute for Environment and Development (IIED), Jordan University of Science and Technology JUST, and UCL. The project tests the hypothesis of whether redirecting the extensive humanitarian aid resources spent on WASH in refugee camps in Jordan could benefit urban areas hosting refugees and Jordanians.
