To what extent are Jordanian women currently participating in water management and conservation projects? This document provides an overview of various natural resource management projects in which women have or have not had significant involvement, and discusses their successes and failures. It provides case-studies from government and non-government projects, and compares the impact of those initiatives on the men and women involved. It also draws from the case studies to provide a summary of the main issues affecting female participation in natural resource management.
This report presents the status of energy efficiency and renewable energy deployment in Jordan. It includes a comparison of Jordanian practice with international practices in energy efficiency and renewable energy and provides case studies of notable energy efficiency and renewable energy developments in the country.
Jordan nationally determines to reduce its greenhouse gas emissions by a bulk of 14 % until 2030. This contribution of GHGs reduction will be unconditionally fulfilled at, maximally, 1.5 % by the Country’s own means compared to a business as usual scenario level. However, Jordan, conditionally and subject to availability of international financial aid and support to means of implementation, commits to reduce its GHGs emissions by additional, at least, 12.5 % by 2030.
Jordan is dominated by arid climate with limited arable land and water resources. This study focuses on crop production and water resources under trends of anticipated climate change and population growth to analyse how these affect water and food security in the country. It finds that recession of irrigated areas led to lesser food production and food security. Results indicate that climate change and population growth increase and intensify problems of water scarcity and food insecurity.
