Mid-Term Evaluatie van de Pilot Inclusive Horticulture Value Chain

In 2018, the Netherlands Enterprise Agency (RVO), in close consultation with the Embassy of the Kingdom of the Netherlands (EKN), launched the pilot project ‘Inclusive Horticulture Value Chain Jordan (IHVC)’. Since then, Jordan had become one of the focus countries of the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs. The Netherlands invests considerable sums of money to support the country with its large refugee population. A sizable portion of the funds have been dedicated to the agricultural sector, with a particular focus on the horticultural sector. According to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, a stronger horticulture sector has the “potential to contribute to economic growth, food security, and employment generation for Jordanian host communities and Syrian refugees”.
