Economic Empowerment Working Group - Jordan

  Working Group Description

The Global Compact for Refugees (GCR), signed December 2018, and the Jordan Compact signed February 2016 at the London Conference, both set goals for economic opportunities that will support refugees and the host communities. In February 2016, the Inter-Agency Task Force (IATF) established the Livelihoods Working Group (LWG), aimed at strengthening operational coordination among agencies supporting Syrian refugees in Jordan with livelihoods interventions in both host and camps settings. End of 2022, following recommendations from the Jordan Strategic Humanitarian committee JoSH, where the reform process of the Inter-Sector Working Group has been endorsed; the group members have revised the structure of the working group and changed its name to become ‘Economic Empowerment Working Group (EE WG)’.
