Since 2012, UNICEF Jordan Country Office has been playing an integral part of the humanitarian response for Syrian refugees in Jordan. As WASH sector lead, UNICEF is leading the Water, Sanitation and Hygiene promotion assistance to the refugees in camps as well as in host communities, including schools and other institutions. Azraq Refugee Camp is among the main locations where UNICEF is providing humanitarian WASH assistance which hosts more than 38,000 refugees.

In Azraq refugee Camp, UNICEF is providing water at a daily average of 2,100,000 litres. This is provided through two boreholes operated within the camp. Currently, water is pumped from the boreholes to the distribution points through main pipelines and pump stations. In addition to wat er supply, UNICEF is also managing wastewater management through the contractor which collects a daily amount of 800 to 1000 m3 and desludging in the proper location.

While all the above activities are conducted by implementing partners, there has been significant bottlenecks regarding the effective service deliver by these partners. Although majority of the problems of quality service delivery are related to water supply, the other WASH components also present some major constraints.

Against this background, UNICEF put together an independent team to conduct daily monitoring of the major UNICEF supported service delivery projects in the camp, with the sole aim of improving the quality and effectiveness of the services provided. This structure has not only improved overall quality of results, but also enhanced a cordial relationship between right holders and duty bearers, particularly in the area of water supply. Based on this experience, UNICEF has decided to expand this monitoring structure to other WASH components it supports in the camp.
