Jordan like other countries, faces financial and economic challenges that have impacted economic growth rates and reflect negatively on the level of development especially at the local level. The Government of Jordan (GoJ) is exerting maximum effort to develop the economy, ensure the best management of resources and work according to clear plans that protect the country from the repercussions of the economic crisis and enable it to achieve the highest levels of growth. Socioeconomic vulnerabilities vary widely between the 12 governorates, especially in terms of local economic development and concentration of urbanized poverty. The GoJ’s fiscal reform programme seeks to maintain fiscal stability and avert financial crises. This will be done through efficient allocation of financial resources, strengthening reliance on local recourses, more efficient and equitable collection of taxes especially by municipalities which will then enable them to achieve better living standards for citizens and fight poverty and unemployment.

As a response to these needs, UNDP Jordan through out its projects has pioneered a significant range of ICT applications to improve the lives of Jordanian citizens. In particular the 2003- 2010 UNDP project on property tax has played an outstanding role in demonstrating the role that ICT can play in enhancing development outcomes through greater transparency, convenience, revenue growth and cost reduction. In addition to that, this project has evidenced that fiscal decentralization is possible, attainable, and rewarding to both the central government and local communities. As a continuation to that, Phase II of the Property Tax Project aims to carry on developing an effective decentralized property tax system by devolving property tax collection at the municipal level. Moreover, Phase II of the property tax project mainly focuses on three areas: increasing compliance rate, implement a more cost- effective system, and provide a better enabling environment for property tax collection in Jordan.

The project works towards achieving objectives under the UN sustainable development framework (UNSDF), 2013-2017 namely; Improved governance to address short, and long-term development challenges. In addition to that, the project evolves around strengthening decentralization and promoting gender equality. Furthermore, the outcomes of this project works advancing towards SDG16 which works on enhancing accountability and strengthening national and subnational government effectiveness levels.
