Project News: New ICMPD Jordan project for the Borders and Residency Department

12 February 2021


On the 10th of February 2021, ICMPD Jordan organised the first steering committee meeting for the “Document Security Jordan” project, financed by the Netherlands. The event was held in Amman with representatives from the Jordanian Borders and Residency Department (BRD), the Embassy of the Kingdom of the Netherlands as donor and ICMPD as the implementing organisation with an online format with representatives located in Vienna.

The Project Steering Committee meeting aimed to officially kick-off the project, agree on the details of the project implementation and endorse the next steps, in particular the supply of equipment and training delivery. The meeting was chaired by representatives of the Embassy of the Kingdom of the Netherlands and co-chaired by ICMPD and served as a platform for discussion and exchange of views on project implementation. 

The expected outcomes were the approval of the project work plan, project communication and visibility plan and joint agreement on the steps ahead. In the upcoming project implementation phase, the BRD document laboratory will be equipped and the staff will benefit from a number of capacity building activities by EU experts and improve information exchange in the field of document security.

This Dutch supported initiative will function as a fully integrated element of ICMPD’s project “Integrated Border Management Jordan” which is funded by the European Union. These two projects will support Jordan to control and manage its borders to ensure greater security for its citizens and visitors. The activities will fully take into account the specificities of Jordan to ensure the long-term sustainability of the project’s achievements.
