Events unfolding in Syria in recent years are affecting stability in the region, and in particular that of its immediate neighbours. Since the beginning of the crisis in March 2011, Jordan has hosted more than 600 000 Syrian refugees, who for the largest part found shelter in host communities. The movement of refugees towards Jordan, Lebanon Turkey and Iraq reached critical levels, calling for targeted responses in each country to deal with the related humanitarian needs, but also the longer-term consequences of the crisis. In this context, the EU Delegation to Jordan has foresaw two programmes, which are complementary: the Development of Northern Governorate of Jordan programme for an amount of €5.4 million and a livelihood development programme for host communities for an amount of €4 million. The two programmes will be implemented through a single call for proposals, divided into different lots. 1/ The Development of Northern Governorate of Jordan 2/ The livelihood programme for host communities The objective of the assignment was to assist the EU Delegation in the formulation of the Call for Proposal Guidelines, which will be launched for the two programmes.
