As part of its continuous support and response to Jordan’s socio-economic challenges, the European Union launched a distinctive project supporting the prevention of gender-based violence and protection systems in Jordan.

With an allocated budget of 4 million Euros, the project is financed under the EU Regional Trust Fund “MADAD”, established in response to the Syrian Crisis, and is being implemented by the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ). The project’s main beneficiaries are Jordan’s Family Protection and Juvenile Department (FPJD) along with the supporting departments within the Public Security Directorate (PSD).

This 42 months project has an overall objective of strengthening the prevention and protection systems on gender-based violence (GBV) in Jordan. The project activities will focus on cross-cutting issues that need a multi-agency approach and cooperation, and will address the specific capacity building needs of the FPJD and the supporting departments of PSD, as the primary beneficiary. The project will also cover the development and implementation of GBV awareness raising and communication activities.
