Reducing erosion in northern Jordan and preventing floods in Za’atari Camp through employment-intensive measures

Jordan Emergencies and disaster resilience
July 2018
June 2020

This project is structured in two distinct components:

(1) ACTED, IUCN, and Horizons, will provide cash for work opportunities to 800 men and women (50% Jordanian, 50% Syrian, and 20% women) in Irbid, Jordan to conduct erosion prevention activities at the watershed of the Zeglab Dam. To support these activities, a small percentage of the cash for workers will provide healthy meals for those working on the erosion prevention activities through a small kitchen established at a CBO. REACH will conduct six social cohesion assessments to inform GIZ’s CfW initiatives across Jordan.

(2) ACTED will provide cash for work opportunities to 1,176 Syrian refugees men and women (25% female) to pilot a stormwater network in District 5 in Za’atari Camp. The intervention aims to mitigate the risk level and occurrence of flooding events in District 5. Ultimately, this pilot will lead to an overall improvement of the sanitation, hygiene and living standards of refugees living in District 5 in Za’atari Camp.
