The roundtable was held under the patronage of Environment Minister Muawieh Radaideh, who said that Jordan is committed to a 31-percent reduction in greenhouse gas emissions and stressed the importance of the ministry’s efforts to develop adaptation approaches in climate change.

Under the updated National Determined Contribution, Jordan will finance 5 percent of the reductions and the rest will “be achieved through international support”, the statement said.

Radaideh said that collaboration between the government, private sector, NGOs, and academia are an essential aspect of defeating climate change. Through such partnerships, the challenges of climate change can be turned into opportunities to produce and store clean energy, develop water recycling, and reduce non-revenue water, among others.

For his part, GGGI Country Representative Dereje Shenshaw stressed his organization’s interest and willingness to defeat climate change with the Environment Ministry and other public and private-sector partners by supporting ongoing and upcoming projects in Jordan.
