GAM Director of the media department Nasser Al-Rahamneh said: “The strategic plan has been developed to adapt to the components of the next phase and face the main challenges, such as climate and environmental changes, water and energy scarcity, the steady increase in the city’s population, and investment opportunities to develop services and keep pace with rapid global changes, the most important of which is the communications revolution, digital transformation, and the use of artificial intelligence techniques in all fields.”

The plan, making use of the available financial and human capabilities, consists of 212 projects/initiatives; it aims to achieve 45 strategic goals and targets for a total value of JD918 million over the next five years.

The priorities of the projects were determined based on approved criteria that take into account the importance and ease of implementation of these projects, including the needs of city planning, of service recipients, of partners, and government trends. The risks associated with each project/initiative are also identified and evaluated.

The plan also includes programs to empower youths and women by providing training programs and boosting their capabilities, to empower and qualify them to enter the labor market.

Some of the initiatives concern improving legislation, systems, policies, and the work environment at GAM in order to improve the performance of employees, monitor their skills and help invest their energies. They will touch the human resources and the retirement systems.
