Jordan Sustainable Infrastructure
January 2022
November 2022

This 11 months project, which builds on a similar 31 months GIZ-funded program launched in 2019, will improve the living conditions and livelihoods of vulnerable Jordanians and Syrian refugees in East Amman. To address social cohesion and infrastructure challenges caused by the large number of Syrian refugees residing in Amman governorate, ACTED will rehabilitate three public spaces in East Amman with green infrastructure. The rehabilitation work will be implemented through labor intensive measures by 96 Syrian refugees and Jordanians through the cash for work approach. Moreover, for a more sustainable impact, beneficiaries will receive technical and on-the-job training as well as post-employment support.
