According to IFC's project disclosure information, Jordan’s Ministry of Education (MoE) aims to implement a multi-year program to build up to 600 new schools to alleviate the shortage of schools in the country. This program will be implemented over the next decade, and IFC will work jointly with the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD) to provide transaction advisory support to MoE to design and implement a pilot project comprising the design, financing, construction, and maintenance of elementary and secondary schools under a Public Private Partnership model.
The pilot project is expected to increase children’s access to education by alleviating school shortages and improving the quality of their learning environment by reducing the number of overcrowded class rooms and rented schools. The project is expected to mobilize private financing to fund the capital investment needed to build, equip, maintain and provide non-pedagogical services.

ACCOUNTABILITY MECHANISM OF IFC
The Compliance Advisor Ombudsman (CAO) is the independent complaint mechanism and fact-finding body for people who believe they are likely to be, or have been, adversely affected by an IFC or MIGA- financed project. If you submit a complaint to the CAO, they may assist you in resolving a dispute with the company and/or investigate to assess whether the IFC is following its own policies and procedures for preventing harm to people or the environment. If you want to submit a complaint electronically, you can email the CAO at CAO@worldbankgroup.org. You can learn more about the CAO and how to file a complaint at http://www.cao-ombudsman.org/
