BACKGROUND

The UNDP Decentralisation and Local Development Support Programme (DLDSP) provides support to the Government of Jordan to effectively manage and guide the implementation of decentralisation reform through the application of the Decentralisation and Municipalities laws of 2015. The DLDSP operates through the Local Development Directorate (LDD) at the Ministry of Interior (MOI) and through its corresponding LDD at the Ministry of Municipal Affairs (MOMA). It functions under the guidance of the Inter-Ministerial Committee (IMC) for Decentralisation and its Executive Committee and its sub-committees. The DLDSP is funded by the European Union.

The DLDSP seeks to achieve three results:

1-                The policy/ regulatory framework pertaining to Decentralisation has been adopted;

2-                Capacities of the Governorate-based structures in strategic planning, budget analysis and monitoring are strengthened;

3-                Participatory development plans have been properly elaborated in Governorates through strengthened dialogue with Non-State Actors and increased citizen’s participation (including identification of local productive projects to be established).

The Decentralisation process in Jordan is implemented in line with Law 49/2015 on Decentralisation and Law 41/2015 on Municipalities.

The DLDSP is mandated to provide a support to amend and regulate the Law 49/2015 and Law 41/2015 by providing a technical assistance to the Legislations Committee under the supervision of the Executive Committee. In addition to a survey and collection of relevant legislations was carried out:

Tier 1: Legislation directly covering work of governorate councils and municipal councils.

Tier 2: Legislations indirectly relevant to work of governorate councils and municipal councils.

Tier 3: Legislations on central sectors with field services. This phase includes a comprehensive survey of the relevant legislation; i.e. laws, bylaws or instructions.
