Skills Mapping for Syrian and Non-Syrian Refugees in Jordan
The World Food Program (WFP) and the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) are willing to address a critical knowledge gap in the humanitarian community regarding refugees’ livelihood-related skills, experience, capacities, and aspirations. The aim of the Skills Mapping project is to produce a census that will provide comprehensive insights into the employability of the refugee population and their potential to become self-reliant in Jordan. The data set covers both Syrian and non-Syrian refugees and will serve to reorient the refugee response in this protracted crisis to longer-term solutions in the country.
Mindset was first hired by WFP in 2022, to collect and analyze data from Syrian refugees through in-person and phone interviews. Over the first round (September 2022-June 2023), our team conducted more than 60,000 interviews and more than 110,000 over the second round which started in October 2023. In 2023, UNHCR also contracted Mindset to perform a similar exercise with non-Syrian refugees. We collected data from more than 10,000 respondents through in-person interviews and home visits.
