In line with its Country Programme Document for the period 2018-2022, the United Nations Development Programme in Jordan supports activities to address poverty and inequality, and achieve resilience and inclusion by supporting initiatives that foster an enabling environment for livelihoods and job creation, especially among vulnerable youth, women, and host communities in crisis-affected areas. These activities include the emergency employment, skills development, and microbusinesses and employment facilitation. These aim to design and apply resilience-based development solutions for local economic recovery and enabling equitable access to financial solutions to ensure no one is left behind in Jordan.

In February 2016, the Government of Jordan launched the Jordan Compact to support Jordan’s growth while maintaining its resilience and economic stability by highlighting the below three interlinked pillars:

  1. Turning the Syrian refugee crisis into development opportunities that attracts new investments and opens up the EU market with simplified rules of origin, creating jobs for Jordanians and Syrian refugees whilst supporting the post-conflict Syrian economy;
  2. Rebuilding Jordanian host communities by adequately financing through grans the Jordan Response Plan 2016-2018, in particular the resilience of host communities; and
  3. Mobilizing sufficient grants and concessionary financing to support to the macroeconomic framework and address Jordan’s financing needs over the next three years, as part of Jordan entering into a new Extended Fund Facility Program with the IMF.

With the development of the Compact, Jordan envisaged that a large number of jobs to both Jordanians and Syrian refugees. However, although Ministry of Labor issued more than 108,000 work permits to Syrian refugees as of July 2018, it is estimated that more than 300,000 Syrians remain work in informal economy. Thus, UNDP continues supporting the Government of Jordan through the project “Support to Prevention of Violent Extremism and Social stabilization in Jordan,” with an aim to strengthen the institutional capacity of Ministry of Labor on the management of work permit application. Particularly, as the Ministry of Labor currently is the administrator of the existing database / system that manages the Syrian refugees’ work permit application, the system needs to be enhanced and fully utilized by a larger number of capacitated staff. Additionally, assessments for the current economic situation and labor related issues are needed to review the current policies and provide guidance notes so as to ensure decent work conditions for both Jordanians and Syrian refugees.  

Technical and financial proposals along with CV & 3 references should be submitted, and without such will not be considered.
