Project or context description

Expertise France is the French international technical assistance agency, created from the merger of the six main French public implementing agencies on 1 January 2015, in order to enhance capacities to mobilize technical expertise, making it possible to address the growing needs of emerging and developing countries more effectively. Under the joint supervision of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Development and the Ministry of Economy, Expertise France aims at participating in French cooperation and development aid through a wide range of interventions in areas such as sustainable development, economic development, public finances, governance and human rights, social protection and employment, health, and issues of stability, safety and security.

Expertise France is starting two new projects in Jordan: 

    a.   Green Forward project

The European Union (EU) is going to finance the “Green and Circular Economy (GCE) in the Southern Neighbourhood” programme to support the strengthening and promotion of the GCE as a vector for job creation and expansion of economic opportunities; while contributing to achieving the external dimension of the Green Deal in the Mediterranean and promoting European green standards. This action will focus on 3 levels of intervention: macro (policy framework), meso (institutions) and micro (enterprise) levels.

The regional layer will serve as catalyzer to mainstream ideas, stimulate peer competition, sharing EU expertise, and standardized messages and seize the “building back better” momentum.

Expertise France has been entrusted with the implementation of Component 1, that will aim to promote, develop and strengthen sound policies and enforceable legislation for the promotion of inclusive GCE through advocacy and peer exchange and increase the level of collaboration between stakeholders (48-month project, total budget of 4 M€)

Public policies are the foundation to the development of a cleaner and greener economy. In this context, MedInGreen will address the need to mainstream inclusive GCE’s objectives at a policy level. The project will also promote a policy convergence on GCE with EU policy framework and within the region.

    b.        Support to Democratic Reforms 

Expertise France signed a delegation agreement with the European Union Delegation to Jordan to support democratic reforms and processes in Jordan. This action seeks to consolidate the progress achieved by the EU Support to Jordan Democratic Institutions and Development (EU-JDID) programme and builds on opportunities arising from the reforms proposed by the Jordanian “Royal Committee to Modernise the Political System” regarding constitutional reform and changes in political parties’ law and electoral law. 

The overall objective of this programme is to promote a more participatory, inclusive and accountable democratic process.

The specific objective(s) of this programme are:

  1. To ensure young men and women meaningful participation in democratic life
  2. To support political parties in creating an enabling environment for increased participation of and responsiveness to diverse groups
  3. To support the House of Representatives in exercising its core parliamentary functions with greater professionalism, effectiveness, inclusivity and accountability
