Land, Housing and Property in Jordan: A review of the legal, institutional, and administrative frameworks

The report ‘Land, Housing, and Property in Jordan: A review of the legal, institutional and administrative frameworks’ lays out the policies, laws, regulations, practices, trends and challenges pertinent to the key functions of land administration, namely land tenure, land value, land use, land development and land disputes resolution in Jordan.

Governmental land stakeholders in Jordan are aware of the importance of land administration and over the last decades they have taken important steps to improve land management and administration and better protect housing, land and property rights. This report aims to expand the knowledge and develop capacities of a wide range of stakeholders on land governance, land administration, and housing, land and property rights. It is intended to form a basis for guiding further reform of the land sector and improving its delivery to the people of Jordan.

This publication is part of the research work carried out by the Arab Land Initiative under the Arab Region Programme on Good Land Governance in Support to Inclusive Development, Peace and Stability funded by the Federal Ministry of Economic Cooperation and Development of Germany (BMZ) under the management of UN-Habitat and the Global Land Tool Network (GLTN).
