The United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) supports Jordan to achieve sustainable development that leads to transformational change in service-centered institutions and bring about real improvements in people’s lives. UNDP employs a participatory approach to ensure mutual ownership is gained int the design and implementation of policy and programming to guarantee addressing the development challenges that affect the country. UNDP also ensures that considerations such as 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 transparency, accountability, and responsiveness to citizens’ needs in Jordan. The European Union awarded funds to the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) to implement the programme “Decentralization, Accountability and Integrity at Local Level Programme (DAILL) in Jordan”. A four-year initiative is currently supporting the decentralisation reforms and 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. 

DAILL seeks to institutionalise citizen participation in planning as well as to holding the authorities and public officials accountable for their actions and omissions in line with the recommendations of previous evaluation studies. the Programme’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, focusing on the field of local governance, the programme will encompass environment-related activities. Focusing on the nexus between climate action and human development, the programme will seek to enhance the capacity of local institutions to effectively implement SDG13 and SDG15. The programme will also scale up local partnerships and support climate or innovative local solutions that bring benefits across SDGs.
