Overview of UN-Jordan Relations

The United Nations Country Team (UNCT) in Jordan consists of 12 agencies, funds, and programs namely UNDP, UNIFEM, UNFPA, UNICEF, UNHCR, UNRWA, UNHABITAT, UNESCO, UNOPS, FAO, WFP, and WHO. In addition to these 12 resident agencies, the UNCT in Jordan works closely with a number of non-resident UN agencies including UNODC, UNIDO, ILO, and IFAD.

 The guiding framework under which the UNCT operates in Jordan is the United Nations Development Assistance Framework (UNDAF). UNCT is currently in the process of implementing its second UNDAF, which is a five-year framework running from 2008-2012. The UNCT meets to ensure that implementation of the UNDAF is in line with the work plan, that it remains relevant, and that it is responsive to national priorities and targets.

Cooperation under the UNDAF is centered on three key pillars, namely:

1.    Poverty and Social Services.

2.    Good Governance.

3.    Health and Sustainable Environment.

In addition to these three key pillars of support, the UNCT collaborates on a number of cross-cutting issues including mainstreaming of gender into programmatic interventions, working with youth, and adopting a human rights based approach to development assistance.

The main UN agencies that operate in Jordan are:

  • UNDP
  • UNICEF
  • UNIFEM
  • UNFPA
