They prioritize projects in certain sectors as holding the most potential for creating decent work for youth, with a focus on young women. While all sectors will be considered, their prioritized sectors are:

Service sectors: Jordan’s economy is dominated by a strong services sector in terms of both, contribution to GDP and employment.
Health Services
Financial Services
Industrial Sectors: In 2017, the industrial sector—led by mining and quarrying— contributed 24.7% of GDP. The sector is also an important employer; in the first half of 2016, it was estimated that this sector employed 221,518 workers.
Agriculture: Food security challenges during the pandemic have emphasized the importance of this sector, and the government has declared it the sector of 2020. The agriculture sector has been growing and has doubled its share of GDP from 2 to 5% in the past 5 years, mainly driven by domestic demand. Capitalizing on new agricultural technologies such as hydroponic systems as well as digitizing the input and output of agricultural decision-making would strongly enhance the efficiency of this sector in Jordan, and impact exports and their quality as well.

Creating new jobs: The below are examples of key areas of impact under “create”. Project ideas that fall outside the scope outlined below will also be considered.
Medium-skilled jobs in growth sectors
Export promotion (in particular, in the services sector) as an engine for growth
Digitization across sectors
Franchising models
Matching jobs: Twenty-six percent of unemployed Jordanians are university (or higher qualified) graduates. At the same time, employers are hard-pressed to find suitable candidates for entry-level positions.
Improving jobs: Solutions in this category will particularly focus on blue-collar jobs in the industrial or agricultural sector, aimed at improving the decency or quality of jobs that youth are currently employed in. This category will also include interventions designed to sustain existing jobs that are at risk of being lost due to COVID control measures or other market factors. Solutions should be focusing on several of the following aspects:
Living income/wage
Security in the workplace
Social protection for families
Prospects for personal development and social integration
Equality of opportunity and treatment
