Jordan is a country facing multiple climate threats, such as heat inversion, water scarcity, droughts, and pollution, affecting the livelihood of populations regarding health, food security, and the cities’ local economic development.



On the local level, ten cities which are all signatories to the Covenant of Mayors for the Mediterranean (CoM Med), have designed and finalised their Sustainable Energy Access and Climate Action Plans (SEACAPs) with the support of the EU-funded Clima-Med project. Al Salt, Al Muwaqar, Al Russeifa, Al Zarka, Al Serhan, Al Mafraq, Balaama, Umm El Jimal, Maadaba, and Deir Allah municipalities are setting ambitious efforts and fundamental measures to tackle climate change, promote sustainable environmental protection and improve their communities’ quality of life.



Local Authorities’ roles are transformed from traditional service providers to sustainable development leaders”, said Mr Omar Abu Eid, Energy, Environment & Climate Change Programme Manager at the EU Delegation.



With the full participation of the municipalities’ leadership, their technical teams, and in collaboration with the National Coordination Group led by the Ministry of Environment and the Clima-Med National Focal Point, Jordanian cities are leading by example; they have proved their willingness and dedication to reduce their emissions and build sustainable model cities.
