“KOICA’s contribution will provide the necessary funding to support climate change resilience for communities living in the most remote and vulnerable areas of Jordan by improving their access to clean water and sanitation,” UNICEF said in a statement.

Children and youths will be educated about climate change and empowered through environmental awareness in climate action clubs, mobilizing youth creativity, innovation and entrepreneurship, and activities to enhance the digital skills needed by the most vulnerable youths to prepare them for future work, according to UNICEF.

Seo said that “UNICEF Jordan and KOICA are once again working together to support the most vulnerable groups of women, youth, children and people with disabilities in Jordan”.

Mawji praised “the commitment and continuous support of KOICA”, adding that “Jordan is already on the front line of the climate change crisis”.

“This funding supports UNICEF’s efforts to build the capacity of children and youth, who are the most vulnerable, to live in a changing world,” she said.
