1. Recommendation:

Ensure evidence informed P/CVE programming by undertaking a gender responsive needs assessment to inform the future P/CVE response in Jordan and by supporting an impact assessment of the NAP.

Management Response: [Added: 2021/06/21]

Partially agree: Renewed studies about human insecurity and the mapping of online extremist ecosystem in Jordan will be conducted to consolidate recent P/CVE research undertaken in Jordan.

Regarding the impact assessment, this may be difficult to undertake especially with the sensitive and unpredictable nature of the topic however, it can be considered on a case-to-case bases in light of the research outcomes.

GP & P/CVE Unit 2022/03 Not Initiated UNDP can support a review and assessment of the NAP in cooperation with the P/CVE Unit.
2. Recommendation:

Strengthen UNDP’s strategic, governance and programmatic structure specific to P/CVE programming for increased internal coherence

Management Response: [Added: 2021/06/21]

Partially Agree: A PVE Programme specific TOC can be developed and can be aligned with the GP TOC however, eventually, there may be gaps in the TOC as initiatives depend on strategic partners agendas as well as their funding. The TOC is a vessel by which initiative results feed into. However, its power to dictate what and when initiatives can be achieved is limited; they can be suggested but not imposed on partners commitment.

As for the 5-year PVE Programme 2023-2027 TOC, this is far fledged because the region is continuously changing and neither are the political nor economic situations predictable, hence a two-year PVE TOC that is tied to the full GP TOC is adequate for the current time.

Key Actions:

The ToC is to inform UNDP Jordan’s overall action to PVE (as opposed to a specific project).
