    The conflict in Syria resulted in massive refugee crisis to neighboring countries, including Jordan. Jordan kept an open border policy, resulting in receiving a huge influx of refugees, posing enormous challenges to the country, with strong implications on the socio-economic situation in general and on municipal service delivery in particular. The spillover effects of the Syrian refugee crisis are taking a heavy toll on Jordanians, especially on the most vulnerable segments of the population in the northern part of the country, where over 600,000 Syrian refugees currently reside, swelling its total population by 11%. This crisis is exacerbating existing vulnerabilities in Jordanian communities.
