About

Building on the momentum and outcomes of COP27, this high-level event will disseminate the key findings and recommendations of the Jordan Country Climate and Development Report (CCDR) as a platform to position Jordan for climate-related reforms, action, and investment. Co-Convened by the Government of Jordan and the World Bank Group, the event will gather representatives from government, the private sector, civil society, academia and international partners.

Overview

Jordan has been an early mover on climate action, but its vulnerability to climate change is growing with impacts already visible on water scarcity, agriculture and food security, cities, firms and social systems.

The Jordan CCDR offers an evidence-based assessment to identify pathways toward climate-resilient and low-carbon growth and development—including integrated solutions for the water-energy-food security nexus and for low-carbon and resilient cities. The event will present the key findings and recommendations of the Jordan Country Climate and Development Report and discuss how Jordan’s sustainable development goals, especially growth and job creation, can be achieved by ensuring fiscal sustainability and addressing climatic risks.

The Jordan CCDR aligns with Jordan’s 10-year Vision for Economic Modernization which places sustainable practices and green investment at the core of Jordan’s future growth. The preparation of the report benefited from extensive consultations with stakeholder groups spanning government, the private sector, international partners and civil society to inform the CCDR’s analysis and policy recommendations.
