JOR - RSS Mapping Aquifer Vulnerability

01.09.2016 - 31.03.2018

The large influx of refugees into Jordan has increased the volume of solid waste going into landfills. A major problem experienced at the landfills is the loss of leachate, and the subsequent potential contamination of the groundwater. The municipalities in Jordan are expanding the current landfills to adapt to the unprecedented solid waste generation. The preparation of the vulnerability maps for these areas will help mitigate against the contamination of the groundwater. Five sites have been chosen for this purpose.


Rehabiltiation of public schools accomodating Syrian refugee children

01.04.2016 - 31.12.2019

Education is one of the public sectors particularly under pressure due to the influx of refugees. There are currently 143,000 school-aged Syrian refugees enrolled in public schools in Jordan, another approx. 83,000 remain out of school. Overstretched infrastructure and lack of space are major challenges. SDC will continue to support the Ministry of Education (MoE) in non-structural rehabilitation of schools accommodating Syrian refugees, including water and sanitation facilities, contributing to increase the accommodating capacities. The project will also include an awareness component addressing maintenance issues.
