05 December 2017
As a strategic planning framework for cooperation at country level, the United Nations Sustainable Development Framework (UNSDF) 2018-2022 thus provides a basis for increased collaboration, coherence and effectiveness of United Nations initiatives and support in Jordan. Under the UNSDF, the United Nations Country Team (UNCT)1 will “Deliver as One (DaO)” and will undertake an overarching, integrated approach for the next five years intended to “leave no one behind.” In turn, the aim will be to help ensure that every person in Jordan enjoys inclusive, equitable and sustainable prosperity, with dignity, security and freedom from fear and violence.
The core priorities of the UNSDF 2018-2022 are to:
- Deepen peace, stability, protection of human rights, social cohesion and the social contract, by strengthening institutional capacities and systems, empowering people, and expanding opportunities for women, youth and the most vulnerable
- Pursue balanced, sustainable and inclusive economic growth, through support to a more diversified and competitive economy Secure a stronger and more equal stake for women in the political, economic and social spheres, without discrimination or fear of violence
