Project Description
Amman, the capital of the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan, is a rapidly growing city with an estimated population of circa 6 million, around 60 per cent of the county’s total population. The population continues to grow due to a large influx of refugees from Syria and other neighbouring countries, expected to continue in the coming years. As a host of over half of country’s population, Amman plays a particularly significant economic and financial role within the country. Amman is also a popular tourist destination in the region, especially during the summer vacations, which can cause additional strain on the city’s infrastructure. Municipal service sectors are most affected by the refugee crisis as the original infrastructure was designed for a lower population. Despite significant efforts from the international community to address the basic needs of the Syrian refugees living currently in Jordan (both in camps and cities), the host communities continue to experience difficulties. On a community level, key points of tension revolve around solid waste management, provision of water services and healthcare. Many factors contributing to the strain on resources and services in host communities pre-date the Syrian crisis, but are now exacerbated by the increasing refugee population. The solid waste management sector suffers increased demand due to the additional population and waste generated. Water, soil, and air pollution have increased due to the increased volume of waste, inadequate collection and disposal capacities, illegal dumping and inappropriate disposal and burning of solid waste.
