UNDP is providing technical assistance to develop definitions and measurement tools to respond to the challenges of poverty in the Kingdom as a multidimensional phenomenon. In this project UNDP is providing direct support to the National Agenda (2006 – 2015) particularly on social welfare theme.
The programme is designed to respond to urgent needs of crisis-affected people in a timely and efficient manner, with emphasis on Jordanians in host communities, to increase their absorption capacity and mitigating any possible tensions between Syrian refugees and hosting communities.
Towards enhancing food security and nutrition in Jordan as a main pillar for poverty alleviation, UNDP has led a Joint UN Program to provide credible, coherent assistance to the government at the national and local levels through supporting coordinated national food security response, increasing sustainable food production for small-holder farmers and improving nutrition interventions and safety nets.
The project has aimed at building capacity of unemployed youth to be able to compete in the labor market, through an internship programme facilitated by special agreements with private and public entities; the internship was preceded by extensive training on life and employability skills in addition to specialized technical training from 4-6 months. The project has targeted unemployed youth aged between 18-26 at three governorates with high poverty and unemployment rates.
In 2004 the Government of Jordan produced its first national Millennium Development Goals (MDG) Report. The report monitored MDG achievements and identified gaps at the national level. This information was used as inputs by decision-makers to direct resources to further MDG progress. However, due to its focus on national level analysis, its recommendations remained only at the "aggregate" levels, not addressing the local level needs.
This project is the second phase of a multi-country program that has been developed to address the complexity of youth employment challenge to contribute to poverty reduction and social stability in Arab countries, including Jordan. This second phase of the project will build on the experience and lessons learned from Phase I of the project. The project will be implemented in 6 governorates in Jordan, characterized with high levels of poverty and/or unemployment, targeting youth employment creation.
The project aims at assisting the Independent Election Commission (IEC) to deliver its mandated functions of conducting fair, credible and transparent elections – particularly the 2012 parliamentary elections. The project also aims at supporting IEC and the Jordanian judiciary in institutionalizing a comprehensive electoral system.
This project aims at upgrading skills of practitioners and policy makers to analyse and diagnose the obstacles to improving the lives of those in the informal economy and develop solutions.
This project aims at enhancing the property tax collection in Jordan by increasing compliance rate, implementing a more cost-effective system and empowering local communities.
This project aims at assisting the Ministry of Political Development (MOPD) in developing and implementing a strategy to strengthen the role of political parties.
This project aims at increasing youth political participation and civic engagement in local governance using an online portal and game on local governance
Crisis Prevention and Recovery
The project aims to improve governance and strengthen Jordanian institutional coping mechanisms to address disaster risk reduction (DRR) for natural hazards and climate change adaptation (CCA) as it relates to prevention, mitigation, and preparedness for flash flooding
Environment and Energy
The project aims at mainstreaming biodiversity conservation in order to promote more effective and integrated management of the coastal zone in the Aqaba Special Economic Zone (ASEZA).
The joint project aims at enhancing Jordan’s key government and civil society’s capacities to adapt to climate change threats to health, food security, productivity, and human security under the conditions of severe water scarcity.
Developing Policy-relevant Capacity for Implementation of the Global Environmental Conventions in Jordan (CB-2 Project)
This Project is expected to contribute in bridging the gap between policy making and implementation capabilities in Jordan for the global environment conventions to which it is signatory namely the UNFCCC, UNCCD and the CBD by linking research to policy-making process
Implementation of Phase 1 of a Comprehensive Polychlorinated biphenyl (PCB) Management System in the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan
The project objective is to provide necessary tools and increase technical capacity of the country to meet the requirements with respect to the Stockholm Convention with the overall objective of safeguarding the environment and health from PCB impacts at the national and global levels.
The project aims to integrate conservation of migratory soaring birds into relevant sectors, namely agriculture, energy, hunting, waste management and tourism, in 11 countries along the Rift Valley / Red Sea Flyway.
