Our Joint Programmes

Adaptation to Climate Change to Sustain Jordan’s MDG Achievements
Jordan has one of the lowest levels of water resources availability, per capita, in the world. Although the country has made advances towards achieving MDG targets, its accomplishments are being compromised as this crippling water scarcity and climate change bring additional threats to health, food security, productivity and human security. The Joint Programme was designed to address these challenges as a key to sustaining Jordan’s human development gains and growth.
