Established in 2012, the UN Women Country Office for Jordan works in close partnership with the Government of the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan, the UN Country Team and the Civil Society to advance the women's national agenda, promote women's empowerment and gender equality.
UN Women's continued support to women in Jordan since 2012 can be found within the archive of past initiatives:
- Economic Empowerment
- Leadership and Political Participation
- Ending violence against women
- Response, Recovery and Resilience
- Financing Gender Equality
UN Women Jordan Country Office engaged its full range of partners in extensive consultations during 2017 to develop a new strategic program of support to the Government of Jordan for the period 2018-2022. This program focuses on supporting Jordan’s efforts to continue to respond to the humanitarian crisis in the region while strengthening its own resilience, stability and security. Framed within the global policy context of the 2030 Agenda and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and the central promise in Jordan’s national planning documents to leave no one behind, in particular vulnerable women and youth, the new program clearly draws the links between women’s empowerment, sustainable development and Jordan’s security and stability.
