The Fiscal Impact of the Syrian Refugee Crisis on Jordan 2014  

This study was published as part of USAID/Jordan Fiscal Reform II Project (FRP II) in 2014. There have been several attempts to measure the consequences of the Syrian crisis on Jordan. The purpose of this study was to only estimate the fiscal effects of the Syrian refugees on the Jordanian budget. The broader economic and humanitarian costs were not measured. This study provides an estimate of the fiscal costs and is by no means a general “needs assessment.” The study measures both the direct and indirect costs asssociated with the crisis.
