Cited as: Daoud Law Office (2018). Needs Assessment of Social Enterprises in the MENA Region – Jordan.

In Jordan Daoud Law Office was engaged to conduct the Needs Assessment supported by SEEDJordan and Civic social enterprise experienced team members to complete the mapping for Jordan. Through extensive desk research, and a broad range of Key Informant Interviews with key stakeholders as well as Focus Group Discussions and workshops rich findings were obtained allowing for clear conclusions relating to the social enterprise ecosystem pertaining to the situation in Jordan.
The team engaged with social enterprises operating in Jordan and in some cases across the region, as well as enterprise support enterprises, incubators and accelerators, the Government of Jordan, banking sector and micro financing institutions, a social responsibility platform, NGOs, companies, community based organisations, chambers of commerce and industry and other actors. The intensive interviews across a wide yet relevant selection of stakeholders in Jordan allowed the team to gain great insight in to the current climate and social enterprise ecosystem, or rather, lack thereof.
