This assessment provides an evidence-based analysis of the ongoing decentralisation reforms in Jordan from the perspective of the principles and practices of open government. It covers topics such as enhancing the role of the centre of government in driving reform, enabling effective public service delivery at the local level, and the potential and expected impact of the country’s decentralisation reforms on Jordan’s open government agenda.



Executive summary

The 2015 Decentralisation Law (DL) and Municipality Law (ML) mark a milestone in Jordan’s democratic development and ongoing effort to improve public governance. In line with the objectives of “Jordan 2025”, the country’s strategic vision, the laws represent an unprecedented effort to place citizens and their needs at the heart of policymaking and service delivery.
