UNHCR 2022 Vulnerability Assessment Framework (VAF) Population Study

The 2022 Vulnerability Assessment Framework (VAF) is the fifth bi-annual representative survey assessing the situation of refugees in Jordan, conducted to identify changes and trends in their vulnerabilities. Designed in 2014, the VAF is a key tool used by humanitarian and development partners in Jordan. It contributes to coherent vulnerability identification and program delivery across sectors. It informs strategic planning of key actors on refugee-related matters and provides evidence-based inputs for the Jordan Response Plan, UN Common Country Analysis and UN Sustainable Development Framework.

Mindset was contracted to manage the large data collection assignment and respective fieldwork for two different components of the VAF study: Firstly, our team conducted a survey among Syrian refugees living in Azraq and Zaatari camps to explore trends and vulnerabilities specific to the camp context. More than 10,000 individuals, representing about 2,00 families, were interviewed face-to-face between October and December 2021. Representativeness was ensured through appropriate sampling methods. Secondly, Mindset collected data from more than 6,000 refugee households (more than 30,000 individuals) of different nationalities living within host communities across all governorates. Both questionnaires explored ten different modules, including Shelter, WASH, COVID-19 knowledge and practices, Financial Situation, Health, Education, Livelihoods, and Child Labour. Before conducting the surveys, Mindset also managed the appointment-setting process with the respondents and conducted face-to-face training sessions for the enumerators in collaboration with UNHCR.
