Ammon News - The United Nations in Jordan has released its Annual Results Report for 2021, highlighting its humanitarian activities under the fourth year of the UN Sustainable Development Framework (UNSDF) 2018-2022 implementation, in which it spent more than $914.1m in the Kingdom, according to a UN statement issued on Wednesday.

The $914m was distributed to supporting three main priorities including strengthened institutions, empowered people and enhanced opportunities, the statement said.

Under these priorities, the UN worked closely with funding partners, civil society organizations and various governmental institutions to support formulation and amendment to new and existing legislations, policies and strategies as well as strengthening capacity of institutions to enable Jordan to achieve its commitments under the 2030 Agenda for sustainable development.
The report, the statement noted, features activities implemented by the United Nations in Jordan over the past year, in responding to the COVID-19 pandemic and addressing its socio-economic impact and inclusive recovery.

The UN also continued creating an enabling environment to enhance individuals’ knowledge of rights, as well as their access to information, education, skills, capacities, and services. Efforts over the past year focused on empowering people to change patterns of behavior, to improve their circumstances and development.

In addition, the UN provided trainings and strengthened economic opportunities with a focus on women and vulnerable Jordanians and refugees.
The statement said that the UN allocated $441.3 million to support the Government of Jordan in its response to the socio-economic impact of COVID-19 and to help Jordan recovery from the pandemic. In addition, the UN supported vaccine rollout including provision of 436,800 COVID-19 vaccines through the COVAX facilities, strengthened capacity of medical staff, and procured hospitals and laboratory equipment and supplies.

In 2022, the UN in Jordan will continue to focus on developing its new Cooperation Framework (CF) for the years, 2023-2027 and bring the current UNSDF cycle to a close. The new CF will highlight four main priorities: enhanced opportunities for inclusive, gender-responsive green growth; enhanced access to quality social services protection; enhanced national capacity to address responsible, equitable access to and consumption of water, food, and energy; and strengthened accountability, transparency and participation, the statement stressed.
