The mainstreaming Biodiversity in the Tourism Sector Project is a GEF/UNDP project commenced in January 2014. The four years project aim is to make the consideration of biodiversity a fundamental part of everyday planning and development for tourism in Jordan. More specifically, the Project Objective is: Biodiversity conservation objectives are effectively mainstreamed and advanced into and through tourism sector development in Jordan.

The project scope includes three components, each reflected in one strategic outcome as follows:

Outcome 1: Regulatory and enforcement framework in place to avoid, reduce, mitigate and offset adverse impacts of tourism on biodiversity. This Outcome is the institutional regulatory framework, and it addresses each of the identified threats. It contributes directly to the Objective since it provides key instruments for mainstreaming biodiversity. It will be applied at the upstream national level.

Outcome 2: Institutional capacities for planning, monitoring and enforcement strengthened in Jerash, Petra and Wadi Rum landscapes so as to manage the impacts of tourism development on biodiversity within ecologically valuable and sensitive areas. This Outcome targets the capacity required for effective management of PAs as well as valuable ecological areas outside the formal PA framework. It addresses the identified threats and contributes to the Objective by ensuring that mainstreaming is effective in providing protection for biodiversity. It will be applied at the landscape level with the aim of changing the trajectory of tourism development, thus addressing direct and indirect threats to biodiversity.

Outcome 3: Improved management effectiveness particularly in revenue generation, tourism planning and management, and community relations in Dibbin, Petra proposed Protected area and Wadi Rum Protected Area. This Outcome targets PA management effectiveness overall as well as the ecological integrity of ecological corridors. It contributes to the Objective indirectly through more robust management regimes for PAs which allows them to overcome the impacts of tourism and recreation. It is applied at the site level, particularly in protected areas.

Technical and financial proposals along with CV & 3 references should be submitted, and without such will not be considered).
