    The Government of Jordan, the World Bank
    Group (WBG), and the international community are working

    continuum between the humanitarian response and the
    country’s development agenda. In parallel, Jordan’s implicit

Corruption in this sector can reduce peoples’ access to land, and harm the livelihoods of small-scale producers, agricultural labourers, indigenous communities and landless rural and urban poor. Women, young people and ethnic minorities suffer most by having their access to land hindered by corruption.
