Establishment of an effective NDC governance for the NDC revision and implementation in Jordan

As of: April 2020

Objective and activities

The project aims at enhancing Jordan’s capacities for implementing, revising and tracking their NDC. Technical capacities of the Ministry of Environment (MoEnv) and other partners will be strengthened. In order to track the progress of NDC implementation, the project supports the preparation of a national transparency system. By enhancing existing information sources (sector studies) and improving data management, the project provides important preconditions for the revision and implementation of the NDC. The project further supports the mainstreaming of the NDC in national planning processes, in particular on a subnational level. Local and regional stakeholders will be better integrated in the national NDC process through the development of climate action plans and the implementation of a pilot activity at the local level. With the intended vertical NDC integration and the implementation of a pilot project, a prerequisite for replicability of local NDC implementation is provided.

State of implementation/results

  • A technical training on the deployment of an inventory of a GHG emission inventory in the waste sector has taken place.
  • An international network of climate municipalities from Morocco, Lebanon and Germany has been initiated to exchange experiences with Jordanian municipalities.
  • The German partner community Saerbeck, which has been awarded several times for its climate protection, was chosen as the German partner community.
  • The project has established the Jordanian Local Climate Change Planning Forum (JLCCPF) in cooperation with the Jordanian Ministry of Environment (MoEnv).
