Challenge Job Opportunities for Refugees: Problem: The refugee crisis is a problem of poverty, not just migration. 70% of refugees are living below the poverty line (less than USD1.90 per day) in their host countries, up from 50% in 2015. 86% of refugees living outside of camps in Jordan are now living below the poverty line, while in Lebanon 70% of Syrian refugee households live far below the national poverty line. UNHCR does not have 59% of the funds needed to reach refugees who require assistance. This translates to a funding shortfall of USD 795 million.
