Jordan Mid-Term Report 2016-2018 – For Public Comment
In 2018, the Independent Reporting Mechanism (IRM) published the Year 1 Report Report for Jordan’s third action plan. The report covers the implementation of the action plan from January 2016 through December 2017.
In Jordan, findings from the Partners-Jordan research team are summarized below:
“Jordan’s third action plan targets issues relevant to the national context, such as the enforcement of the access to information law and decentralization of political power to foster public participation at the local level. However, some commitments are broadly formulated, lacking sufficient scope for tackling identified policy issues effectively. In the next action plan the government needs to engage in more constructive dialogue with CSOs and prioritize commitments on the enforcement of FoI law, the operating environment for media and public finance transparency.”
The Arabic and English versions of this report are now available. At this time, the public is invited to provide comments on the report. The two-week public comment period officially ended March 27, 2019.
