Poverty Pockets: Baseline and Needs Assessment

2010

As part of a national effort to profile and assess poverty pockets in Jordan, the Information and Research Center - King Hussein Foundation (IRCKHF) conducted a needs assessment of eight poverty pockets around Jordan. The main objective of the assessment was to reflect on the socioeconomic reality in each of the 8 localities and put in place an action plan for social and economic interventions in participation with the local community in each area. The assessment included three components: I) Profiling of all service providers in each locality (health, education & vocational training, infrastructure, agriculture, economic empowerment, social services, sports & leisure, nutrition, environment) , II) Accumulation of existing information from official sources such as the Department of Statistics and various ministries , and III) conducting focus group discussions and participatory needs assessment with constituents (men, women, youth) from each locality.
