Expert project coordinator – long-term resident – JORDAN
As part of the support provided by AFD and Expertise France to Jordan, and in particular its financial support to MoLA, Ministry of Local Administration and GAM, Greater Amman Municipality, a technical assistance program has been programmed to support the improvement of local financial governance for the benefit of three major actors:
The MoLA, Ministry of Local Administration, is responsible for the supervision and technical and financial control of municipalities (control and approval of budgets, management of State transfers, control and approval of calls for tenders issued by municipalities, control of the application of laws, decrees and instructions by municipalities, etc.). It also monitors local elections;
The CVDB, Cities and Villages Development Bank, is the historical lender of municipalities in Jordan. The public bank provides financing to municipalities, management of their long-term loans and technical support for their investments;
The GAM, Greater Amman Municipality is the state-controlled municipality of Greater Amman, with 21,500 employees and a population of about 4.5 million, or nearly 40% of the Jordanian population. It is mainly active in urban planning, roads, solid waste management and urban transport.
The objective of this project is to « develop and structure local financial management in Jordan » by carrying out complementary actions with these 3 actors through three specific objectives:
– Support the MoLA in its development of skills and its positioning as a key player in the financial and fiscal decentralization process in Jordan;
– Develop local investment and its financing by positioning the CVDB as a pivotal actor (technical and financial) at the service of local projects; support the implementation of the roadmap for the modernisation of the CVDB;
– Support the improvement of the financial management of the GAM.
This project takes a cross-cutting approach by addressing the specific needs of 3 key actors in municipal development in Jordan.
In this context, we are looking for a long-term resident expert coordinator.
