STRENGTHENING ECONOMIC OPPORTUNITIES (JORDAN)

Together with the City of Amsterdam, VNG International looked at ways to widen the scope of economic opportunities for the longer term of the Zaa’tari camp in Jordan.

Widening the spectrum of economic opportunities through Spatial and Scenario Planning

Using spatial and scenario planning techniques they prepared the camp’s authorities for multiple future scenarios that will directly influence the livelihoods and socioeconomic outlook of the people living in the camp and in the wider region of northern Jordan. Now the camp and the region are ready to act not just for today, but for tomorrow too.

Economic life and activities are very well developed in the camp and create space for many more opportunities that can be exploited.

STRENGTHENING ECONOMIC OPPORTUNITIES The results
  • Development Framework for further development of the camp.
  • Development of a Scenario Game as a strategic decision making tool.
