Jordan Green Growth National Plan 2021-25: Waste Sector
Passed in 2020
Jordan has published GG-NAPs, or Green Growth National Action Plans for six sectors namely Agriculture, Energy, Tourism, Transport, Water and Waste. The GG-NAP for the waste sector identified 5 objectives and 14 sub-objectives, including resource efficiency and climate change adaptation and mitigation. To this end, the government commits to reducing and capturing methane emissions from landfills, which contribute to 3% of the country's GHG emissions. High-priority actions identified for this objective include the identification of priority sites for waste-to-energy projects, and construction of e-waste management facilities to divert waste from landfills.
