USAID LENS focuses on several sectors, one of which is tourism. Since 2014, USAID LENS has focused on supporting and promoting the adventure tourism industry in Jordan, as a potential major driver of jobs and revenue for MSEs in Jordan. The primary objective of this intervention is to upgrade tourism-related MSEs in local communities along the Jordan Trail, to turn them into becoming high-quality key service providers. The mechanism of achieving this objective will include a grant in which tour operators/travel agents/tourism consulting groups apply to in order to develop the mentioned MSEs. The applicants are to choose MSEs along one or more of the 8 section(s) of the Jordan Trail (referring to the mapped out route on the Jordan Trail website: http://jordantrail.org/discover-the-jordan-trail/) Fore more information, download the RFA PDF below.
