Decent Work and the Agriculture Sector in Jordan: Evidence from Workers’ and Employers’ Surveys (2018)

The agriculture sector in Jordan provides a critical source of sustenance and income, particularly for the poorest segments of society. Despite its relative level of importance, there is a lack of empirical evidence documenting employment and working conditions in the agriculture sector in Jordan. While small focus group discussions and anecdotal evidence suggest informality and unfavourable working conditions, little data exists to support these claims.
