ABOUT DAI JORDANDAI Jordan was launched in February 2009 as a logical outgrowth of DAI’s nearly 20-year history in the country and expanding presence in the region. In all, DAI has undertaken more than 20 short- and long-term projects in Jordan, ranging from cutting-edge work in the water sector to agricultural policy analysis; trade, investment, and enterprise support; economic reform; microfinance and business management assistance; and our most recent roles on the Sustainable Achievement for Business Expansion and Quality project (SABEQ) and the Instituting Water Demand Management in Jordan project (IDARA).
DAI Jordan’s role is to broaden and deepen DAI’s client relationships still further in Jordan and the region, working across clients and across the full range of DAI’s technical areas. Our Jordan office is led by Managing Director Jamal Al-Jabiri, who works shoulder-to-shoulder with DAI Palestine—DAI’s office in Ramallah—in support of regional initiatives. DAI Palestine provides financial and other infrastructure support to the Amman team.
Jamal Al-Jabiri joined DAI after a distinguished 11-year career with the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) in Jordan, most recently as Deputy Director of the Office of Economic Opportunities. Before joining USAID, he worked for 10 years at The Housing Bank in Amman.
