Host communities in the Middle East
The German government’s Middle East Programme aims to strengthen refugee host communities in Jordan, Lebanon, and Turkey. The professional expertise of German municipalities or local authorities should be introduced, in order to improve municipal services.
In the medium term, an urban network of experts for the exchange of expertise and mutual consultation should be developed (through Connective Cities), and municipal project partnerships should be supported (by Engagement Global’s Service Agency Communities in One World). This approach will be implemented in close cooperation with, and complementary to, the bilateral projects in the region.
