When the T-ICSP was being formulated, WFP expected to continue to assist the estimated 60,000 Syrians stranded at the Berm from Jordan. In line with past practice, these refugees would receive in-kind food assistance from WFP upon registration with the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR). 7.The Jordanian Government, however, has expressed a preference for this group to be assisted from the Syrian Arab Republic, so the international community has taken steps to make that possible. Consequently, activity 1 has been reformulated to refer only to unconditional resource transfers to Syrian refugees, omitting any reference to Syrians at the Berm. Related outputs have also been deleted.8.Strategic outcomes 2 and 3: This revision results in no change to strategic outcomes 2 and3 or their related activities.
