The United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) supports Jordan to achieve sustainable development that leads to transformational change, bringing about real improvements in people’s lives, through the design and implementation of policy and programming to address the development challenges that affect the country. #Nextgen UNDP also ensures that considerations such as the Gender Equality, Private Sector Engagement, Environmental Sustainability, and Innovation are addressed while aligning local demand driven development solutions to the 2030 Agenda.

UNDP and the European Union collaborate in improving public sector’s integrity, accountability and responsiveness to citizens’ needs in Jordan. The European Union provided a grant to the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) for the implementation of the project 'Decentralization, Accountability and Integrity at Subnational Level Programme (DAILL) in Jordan. A four-year initiative will support the decentralisation reforms and main streaming of SDG16 “Peace, justice and strong institutions” implementation in the Kingdom, in line with the policy priorities of the Government of Jordan in the National Renaissance Plan 2019-2020. 

DAILL will seek to institutionalise citizen participation in planning, following the execution of the local strategic plans, evaluation of the results and in holding the authorities and public officials accountable for their actions and omissions. The project’s implementation will be fundamentally focused on strengthening the administrative and downwards accountability in Jordan. The role of elected councils and the relationship between citizens and public administration throughout the planning/budget cycle will be enhanced. Transparency will be strengthened through participatory planning processes for both, integrated territorial development plans (governorates and municipalities) and sectoral plans (health, education, social services). As a result, decision-making for the allocation of public resources is expected to be transparent (full disclosure and discussion) and will incorporate the demands and expectations of communities and citizens. Furthermore, development plans should reflect national policies and commitments to achieve the SDGs. Accountability will be enhanced during the execution of the plans and further evaluation of the results of the plans.

In addition to focusing on the field of local governance, the project will encompass environment-related activities. Focusing on the nexus between climate action and human development, the project will seek to enhance the capacity of local institutions to effectively implement SDG13 and SDG15. The project will also scale up local partnerships and support financing of climate financing for innovative local solutions that bring benefits across SDGs.
