PKF Jordan and Kurdistan 7/12/2015
Jordan River Foundation (JRF) and PKF Jordan laid down a new corner stone in their long and successful relationship. Jordan River Foundation had selected PKF Jordan as their reliable consultants to perform the market assessment and analysis as part of the Emergency Employment Project which is implemented by Jordan River Foundation in partnership with UNDP’s Program to mitigate the effect of the Syrian crisis on the host community funded from DANIDA and CENTERAL EMERGANCY RESPONSE FUND (CERF/OCHA
Towards this objective, Jordan River Foundation in partnership with UNDP adopted a three-phased approach called “3X6 (three-by-six)” in three areas (Rihab, Housha and Sama Al Sahran). The 3x6 is an innovative UNDP programme approach to promote sustainable livelihoods for vulnerable groups living in transition countries and/or affected by crises triggered by disasters or violent conflicts.
The assignment will entail a desk research and field survey to assess and profile the markets in the three communities; Rihab, Housha, and Sama Al Sarhan. The purpose for this analysis is to highlight feasible micro business ideas or sectors for beneficiaries of the local communities whereby selected beneficiaries engaged in the program will receive the fund associated with the program.
The market assessment will include researching primary and secondary data sources to estimate the sizes and concentration of microbusinesses, status of employment of Syrian refugees, and involving stakeholders through discussions to reach the desired and needed ideas to fill in market gaps.
