Humanity needs leadership and solidarity to defeat the coronavirus
Over one year into the COVID-19 pandemic, enterprises across Jordan continue to face profound challenges. Micro and small businesses - which make up the majority of private enterprises in the Jordanian economy - are hardest hit, according to a new report by the International Labour Organization (ILO), the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) and Fafo Institute for Labour and Social Research (FAFO).
This report, developed by the ILO, Fafo Institute for Labour and Social Research and the UNDP in Jordan, presents the impact of the pandemic on Jordanian enterprises one year after the first lockdown was introduced, and describes the challenges that enterprises continue to face.
The United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) and the Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency (Sida) launched a project which aims at scaling up innovation in water management for climate security in Northern project. The project was launched in Jerash, in the presence of the Governor of Jerash and representatives of government agencies, NGOs, the private sector and donors.
UNDP, Ministry of Interior and the Independent Election Commission convened to discuss potential networking opportunities between the Local Administration Master’s degree program and the Electoral Policies High Diploma program. Through this nexus, potential coordination opportunities between both programs were discussed.
In the last month, I have been reflecting on my time in the UNDP and the Accelerator Lab so far. When I had to write a blog, it was on the top of my head to document that. I first had to look at the blogs by other colleagues in the lab around the world about their own learning experiences and learnings.
