Titre : Socio-Economic Empowerment of Vulnerable Women in Ghor Al Safi (Jordan)

Pays : Jordanie

Dates : 28 Jan 2021 // 14 Jan 2022

Identification : 00125739

The COVID-19 pandemic, and the resulting mandatory lock-down and movement restrictions in the country, have caused severe socioeconomic consequences, aggravating the existing vulnerabilities of communities in Jordan. In response to the growing vulnerabilities among conflict-affected and marginalised women in Jordan in general and in the Southern Jordan Valley specifically, this intervention aims to enhance the socio-economic conditions of vulnerable women living in Ghor Al Safi, through the provision of a safe and green public space and the creation of livelihood opportunities. In line with the UN Framework for COVID-19 Response for Jordan, this project adopts a multidimensional approach seeking to address pillar 2, 3, and 5, through increasing the employability of the women in the area, building their capacity, and improving their overall wellbeing. This will be achieved primarily through the provision of the enabling environment and the tools that will assist these women in developing and promoting their own small businesses and achieve economic sustainability in a safe and inclusive environment. the Green public space additionally will provide fundamental ecological solutions to climate change, strengthening climate action and improving the urban environment in Ghor Al Safi, which is characterized by very hot weather in the summer. The project seeks to work closely with local NGOs to ensure a strong gender perspective and use their networks to reach the most vulnerable groups of society.
