Mid Term Evaluation of Phase III EU MADAD Fund Support to Strengthen the Resilience of Palestinian Refuges from Syria in Jordan and Lebanon

The MADAD III project ‘Strengthening Resilience of Palestine Refugees from Syria (PRS) in Jordan and Lebanon’ had been under implementation since January 2020 and ended in June 2022. MADAD III built on the achievements of previous phases (MADAD I and MADAD II). In Jordan, the main focus of the project had been supporting PRS to meet their basic needs through cash assistance and responding to the protection needs of PRS. In the Lebanon Field (LFO), MADAD III supported PRS to meet their basic needs through cash assistance, as well as basic education, primary health and protection services. PRS in both the JFO and LFO experienced restrictions on access to employment, protection concerns and access to services. The worsening of the financial, economic and political situation in the LFO rendered PRS even more vulnerable.

The purpose of the mid-term evaluation of the MADAD III Programme in Lebanon and Jordan was to assess its performance to support both accountability and learning. The evaluation considered all components of the programme in Jordan and Lebanon and provided evidence to inform decision-making about PRS programming.
