Addressing high unemployment rates in Jordan, this 2-years project aims at improving access to agricultural livelihood opportunities for Syrian refugees and vulnerable Jordanians. The intervention directly targets 2,670 Syrian refugees and 2,845 vulnerable Jordanians, as well as nine established agricultural cooperatives in Mafraq, Irbid and Balqa governorates.. ACTED will build the capacity of 9 cooperatives to engage in markets; involve Syrian refugees and Jordanian farmers in income-generating activities; and, provide tailored training and cash grants to beneficiaries for the establishment of microbusinesses. Moreover, ACTED will provide technical support to key agricultural umbrella bodies, such as the Jordan Cooperative Corporation and the Ministry of Agriculture to further sustain the project activities
