Improvement of Sustainable Development Conditions in the Jordan Valley

In Jordan, one of the most arid countries in the world, droughts, heat waves, lack of rain and water scarcity are not new phenomena and the impacts of climate change are further exacerbating the problem. At the same time, the country is facing diverse economic problems. It is therefore crucial for the economic and environmental development of the country and the future of its next generations to promote a sustainable agriculture, which constitutes a main economic sector in Jordan.

The Jordanian Economy in a Strained Regional Climate

As the crises in Syria and Iraq erupted and borders have been shut down, Jordan has lost two important import-export markets. Also transit trade, connecting Lebanon and Turkey to GCC markets, has suffered significantly. In order to discuss the social and economic impacts of the crises and to identify alternatives and opportunities, KAS Jordan Office in cooperation with al-Quds Center for Political Studies organized a workshop on the 14th of November in Amman.
