A key question confronting funders and implementers is how to measure Women’s Economic Empowerment (WEE). This technical brief presents guidance and learnings on how a project can collect behavior change data and monitor women’s economic empowerment projects.

Jordan Valley Links (JVL) is a five-year project (2016-2021), implemented with the generous support of Global Affairs Canada. The ultimate outcome of the project is to increase the contribution by women and youth to Jordan’s economic growth. JVL is supporting women and youth in the Jordan Valley in seizing new opportunities in targeted sectors, and ultimately to become strong economic actors.

Global Affairs Canada (GAC) and MEDA are supporting 25,000 women and youth entrepreneurs in the Jordan Valley to identify
new livelihood opportunities, build their businesses and connect to higher-value markets.

Over five years (2016-2021), the project will focus on the food processing, tourism and clean technology sectors. Women and youth entrepreneurs in these sectors will be connected to private sector actors and service providers with the goal of strengthening the contribution of women and youth to Jordan’s economy and building a more sustainable and inclusive market system in the Jordan valley.
