Jordan’s social protection programs range from subsidies to cash transfer schemes, tax exemptions and social services. The system faces challenges of fragmentation, limited resources and gaps in coverage. Existing programs lack the human resources for monitoring or case management of beneficiaries, and coordination between the national system and humanitarian assistance programs is not robust. Government of Jordan is developing National Social Protection and Poverty Reduction Strategy (2018-2025).

This is also due to the fact that since 2002 the rural water supply in the West African country has been organised decentrally; however, the municipalities continue to lack the required knowledge and infrastructure.
