United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) has announced a call for proposals for Enhancing Women Participation in Solid Waste Management Sector to improve the socio-economic empowerment, well-being and stability of rural women in Northern Jordan, especially in the Solid Waste Management (SWM) sector.

The programme seeks to provide resilience-based development solutions for local economic recovery, including green economy opportunities and enabling equitable access to financial service solutions to ensure no one is left behind. The core of its programme strategy embraces a mid- to long-term approach to self -reliance for all including refugees.
The design of the project is built around three tracks:
  • Enhancing and strengthening the role of CB0s/CSOs to enable such organizations to work effectively and efficiently with women within the targeted communities to become a vehicle for women and women’s voices in decision-making processes.
  • Provision of financial support to the CB0s/CSOs and Cooperatives to start working on increasing participation of women in the local economy, particularly in/ or linked to the solid waste sector, through designing and managing green business groups’ projects.
  • Working with national and local government to enhance gender informed and responsive policy making in SWM at local and national levels.
The “Enhancing Women Participation in the Solid Waste Management Sector in Jordan” project is designed to utilize and upscale the UNDP’s expertise in the solid waste management and related local market dimensions to provide interventions aiming at empowering women economically, strengthening their voice and representation at the local level, and enhance the institutional capacities to accompany this process. Furthermore, this project will benefit from UNDP’s global and regional experience in implementing such projects. It will also link and build on other relevant interventions implemented by other international organizations, government, and others.
