This report is part of the Markets for the Poor (M4P) study which aims to identify potential interventions in specific agricultural value chains and to improve the livelihoods of Syrian refugees and poor Jordanian households. This report is based on a rapid market assessment involving a process of key informant interviews and focus group discussions with male and female Syrian refugees, and with Jordanian households. Three value chains with the highest potential for improving the livelihoods of refugees and poor Jordanian households were identified and prioritized. The selected value chains are citrus, specifically orange, cucumber, and small ruminants’ dairy products. This report provides a detailed analysis of the selected value chains covering production, marketing, logistics, processing and retail. In the rapid market assessment, a detailed review of the literature and an analysis of the effects of the Syrian crisis on Jordan, the Syrian refugee population in Jordan, the livelihoods of the refugees and poor Jordanian households, and the Jordanian labour market were discussed.
