Présentation
The overarching goal of this project is to study the key challenges, socio-economic issues, and identify the opportunities for ICCAs in Jordan. As part of this goal, this project aims at elaborating ICCAs concept within all Jordanian landscapes/seascapes context.
The specific objectives of this project are to : 1. Identify the existing and potential areas/territories that fit the characteristics of ICCA concept and provide a glimpse of the range, diversity, coverage and values of those ICCAs and the socio-cultural, economic and political contexts important for them 2. Provide an understanding of the status and processes of recognizing and supporting ICCAs on national levels and suggestions on how appropriate recognition and support could be given to them. This will also include the synergies and linkages between the Hima concept and ICCAs. 3. Facilitate for advocacy and networking, both among indigenous peoples and local communities governing ICCAs as also with and among support groups and establish database for all defined, disrupted and desired ICCAs in Jordan under the supervision of RSS. 4. Enhance ICCA awareness and plan a self-strengthening process through building the capacity of the local communities in a wide range of topics that would improve their abilities to document the values of the conserved areas, identify the possible threats and improve their overall resilience. Through the SSP process, the community can heighten or rekindle the connection with its territory, its governance institution and its positive results (conservation of nature, maintenance of the cultural patrimony, sustainable livelihoods, food sovereignty, etc.) 5. A concise strategy to manage the protected areas in Jordan and modalities of ICCAs implementation in Jordan. Administrative measures will focus on the inclusion of ICCAs in conservation, poverty, livelihood, and other action plans, providing platforms for indigenous peoples and local communities’ voices in planning and decision-making. This objective will also include elaboration of decentralization law in Jordan No. (49) year 2015 in the context of ICCAs.
