OUR FOCUS

Inclusive Participation

Inclusive. Participatory. Responsive. 

The UNDP Inclusive Participation (IP) Pillar assists governmental institutions, civil society and the people of Jordan in advancing inclusive and participatory policies and practices needed to accelerate progress on the national priorities outlined in Vision 2025 (in particular: active and empowered citizens; a proud and vibrant society; and efficient and effective government) and on the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development (in particular, SDGs 5, 10 and 16). As outlined in the 2018-2022 Country Programme Document, this is addressed through: promoting inclusive participation in responsive, representative decision-making both by facilitating opportunities for decision-makers to consult with citizens, especially youth, and by mobilising citizens’ participation as voters; enhancing democratic oversight and improved legislation relevant to the achievement of the Goals; building effective, accountable and transparent governmental institutions, including measures to reduce corruption and mainstreaming institutional integrity mechanisms; building effectiveness of decentralized systems and institutions in identifying and responding to the needs and priorities of citizens, especially that of women and youth, at the local level; and advancing women’s equal participation across political and decision-making processes.
