Jul 17, 2017

Within the framework of the Community Cohesion Grant Mechanism Phase II project (CCGM), implemented by the United Nations Development Program (UNDP) in Jordan and funded by the government of Japan and the the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation; UNDP has signed yesterday cooperation agreements with 25 community based organizations from various governorates of Jordan with the aim of enhancing social cohesion and strengthening social stability.

 

The CBOs which are based in the Jordanian governorates of Irbid, Ma’an, Mafraq, Tafilah and Zarqa have been awarded a total of 569,447 JDs to implement their proposed projects which are centered around community engagement, promotion of cultural diversity for non-violence and peacemaking, women’s role in peace and social stability, youth participation and support to research and community.

The CCGM project aims to enhance social cohesion and stability through implementing targeted development initiatives and programs in partnership with community based organizations operating in the local communities.

 

It is worthy of mention that CCGM Phase II is part of the “Mitigating the Impact of the Syrian Refugee Crisis on Jordanian vulnerable host communities” intervention which was started in 2013 with an overall objective to contribute to sustaining social and economic stability, with focus on the Northern governorates, namely Irbid and Mafraq, and enable Jordanians to continue to pursue their human development aspirations.
