Find out how the UK will respond to opportunities and challenges, what is being achieved for the UK and who we are working with.
By 2020 UK aid will help Jordan be more secure, resilient and economically and politically sustainable; acting as an effective long term partner in tackling regional instability, providing a safe, stable haven for refugees to remain in their region and countering extremism and terrorism. Jordan is a leading Arab member of the counter-Daesh coalition. Conflict and instability in Jordan would lead to serious humanitarian, political, economic and security consequences for the region and the UK’s national interests, especially on extremism and migration. T he UK and Jordan Business Task Force is promoting investment and trade between the UK and Jordan. UK aid is helping Syrian refugees stay in Jordan, as opposed to risking dangerous journeys to Europe or elsewhere. It is providing them with an opportunity to live in dignity and increasingly provide for themselves until they can safely return home.
