Work context

The Jordan mission is dynamic and rapidly growing, with large-scale WaSH and Livelihoods programmes being implemented in host communities (Azraq, Irbid, Jerash and Madaba) and the Azraq refugee camp. MHPSS programming is very small in scale, implemented in the north (Irbid). The Jordan Country Strategy has been recently revised, through an in-depth context review, community consultations and internal workshops. The overall objective of the strategy is to strengthen the resilience of vulnerable people to socio-economic and environmental challenges in Jordan, with an emphasis on rural and peri-urban women and youth. The revised strategy, in line with the needs of the Jordanian context, brings up interesting challenges in terms of development-oriented WASH programming, focusing on sustainable and multi-sectoral interventions.  With a team of 8 international employees and more than 100 national colleagues, the Action Against Hunger Jordan office manages a portfolio of projects for approximately EUR 7.5 million, in response to the Syria crisis and its reverberating effects on development conditions in Jordan. Donor supporting these programmes range include the EU via MADAD, AFD, GIZ, and SDC.  

The coordination office in Amman supports the three operational bases in Azraq, Irbid, and Madaba

Jordan is considered as a stable country where security conditions enable safe implementation of projects.
