The proposed project will directly target 560 Syrian refugees, 240 vulnerable Jordanians (50% of whom will be women) and their respective families (amounting to 4000 direct beneficiaries) as well as 8 cooperatives (comprising a total of approximately 400 members) in Mafraq and Irbid governorates.

This intervention aims to enhance integration and participation of Syrian refugees and vulnerable Jordanians in agricultural livelihoods opportunities through 8 cooperatives in northern Jordan. By improving the capacity of 8 cooperatives in Mafraq and Irbid Governorates to engage the market and support the involvement of Syrian refugee and Jordanian farmers in income-generating activities, and through the provision of tailored training programmes and cash-based grants, throughout the projectbeneficiaries will developed the appropriate skills to establish microbusinesses in coordination with the local cooperatives, with the businesses linked to work permits through the cooperatives.

The project will be conducted in partnership with International Labour Organisation (ILO), who will advise on the adaptation and use of ILO methodologies, including the MyCOOP methodology, and serve on a Training for Rural Economic Empowerment (TREE) project steering committee alongside other key stakeholders.
