About This Program:

The Upskilling Program in Food Security and Agricultural Technology in collaboration with Sahara Forest Project (Norway) aims at developing the skills and competencies of young Jordanian graduates interested in working in innovative and sustainable Agri-tech and food production in response to Jordan’s water, energy, and climate action priorities.

In its pilot phase that took place between October 2020 – October 2021, 30 female Engineers were targeted through the partnership between Al Hussein Technical University and the Sahara Forest Project in Aqaba. The program intended to increase employment opportunities for the participants by focusing on the skills required in the labor market, such as specialized technical skills in the areas of climate smart agriculture, English language, research, technical writing, and presentation/communication skills.
