Promoting urban regeneration through community interventions, with a focus on tourism development and urban green space in Amman

Client : Jordan Development Zone (JDZ)

Location : Dead Sea, Jordan

Year :  2015

This programme highlights the importance of protection and preservation of cultural heritage sites and provides opportunities for the residents in developing their own community initiatives, with a strong focus on beautifying neighborhoods and urban communities in the downtown area. Partnering with the Greater Amman Municipality
(GAM), UNDP has been encouraging young men and women to lead the community interventions and be part of the decision-making process on neighborhood improvement. Therefore, the “Heart of Amman” programme is envisaged to improve social cohesion and the sense of belonging of vulnerable Amman residents, as well as
encourage them to have a stronger sense of community responsibility by protecting cultural legacy and revitalizing the areas in downtown Amman.
