Ammon News - The International Labor Organization (ILO), with funding from the Italian Ministry of Foreign Affairs, represented by the Italian Agency for Development Cooperation (AICS), organized a training workshop on green labor intensive projects.

The workshop is implemented through the project "Towards a more inclusive economy through immediate job generation and enterprise development for vulnerable refugee and host communities in Jordan."

The five-day event comes under the partnerships launched to support Jordan's Ministry of Local Administration in refining Jordan's most vulnerable workers' skills, producing administrative outcomes to advance the status of the targeted municipalities, developing their policies, and integrating modern business methods, according to a joint statement.

Director of the Solid Waste Management Unit, Basem Saeedh, said the workshop targeted 25 engineers from the Ministry of Local Administration and the Kingdom's municipalities, focusing on municipalities in the Syrian refugee- hosting communities in the northern governorates of Irbid and Mafraq.

In turn, the ILO project manager, Aya Kasasbeh, said the coordination between the ILO and the Ministry of Local Administration has yielded "positive" results that will lead to achieving the project's "desired" goals.

This would reduce eco-risks associated with climate change and promote the concept of fighting poverty and unemployment by preserving natural resources, Kasasbeh pointed out.

The workshop included training on implementing green labor-intensive projects and field visits to three labor-intensive areas in Amman's Naour municipality to team up efforts to launch a conscious environmental culture to support municipalities, said the statement.
