Since 2017, Jordan has made the establishment of green growth a top national priority. The Green Growth National Action Plan 2021-2025 (GG-NAP) was created to expand on Jordan’s climate and sustainable development ambitions by mainstreaming green growth, climate change, and sustainable development objectives into sectoral strategic frameworks. Sector-level action plans were developed for each of the priority green economy sectors: Agriculture, Energy, Tourism, Transport, Waste, and Water.
Each GG-NAP provides implementable actions to achieve the five national green growth objectives and embody the four driving principles of green growth implementation. Detailed descriptions of priority policy and investment actions are included in the sector action plans, which will serve as the core of Jordan’s green growth, climate change, and sustainable development agendas in the 2021 to 2025 period. The GG-NAPs were developed with technical support from the Global Green Growth Institute (GGGI), who worked with the Ministry of Environment to conduct wide-ranging stakeholder consultations in 2018 and 2019.
