Decent Work in Jordan’s Floriculture Sector


Titre : Decent Work in Jordan’s Floriculture Sector

Pays : Jordanie

Identifiant : JOR/19/02/AUS

Date/Durée : Start date : July 1, 2019 // End date : October 31, 2022

Since 2008, the floriculture sub-sector in Jordan has experienced promising growth. 2018 estimates show approximately 70 farms producing 70 million cut flowers and employing approximately 3,000 workers annually. While the sector has faced challenges similar to those of other agricultural sub sectors in Jordan, including diminishing water resources, rising energy prices and lack of qualified labour, there is little known about the workers and the conditions they are employed under. At the global level, the sub-sector has come under scrutiny for its poor labour practices, including instances of forced labour and child labour, as well as concern for workers’ safety and health. The ILO has documented considerable decent work deficits in the agriculture sector in Jordan. Such deficits including under and non-payment, occupational safety and health hazards and absent social protection systems. This project will provide the first ever assessment of decent work in Jordan’s floriculture subsector and support producers and workers to enhance productivity and comply with decent work principles.
