Climate Change Resilience in Jordan
The Zarqa River Basin (ZRB), the chosen location for a demonstration site in Jordan. Three communities have been chosen: Rusaifeh, Shomar and Kherbit al Hadid
Being classified as one of the driest countries in the world, Jordan faces great burdens when dealing with climate change impacts. The Zarqa governorate is the third densest governorate in Jordan, being an industrial city, Zarqa has the largest number of factories in Jordan, holding Jordan’s only oil refinery. The environmental, social and agricultural status of the area makes it a pollution hotspot.
SEARCH will therefore bring stakeholders from all backgrounds together to adress and manage negative impacts in Zarqa using its participatory approach.
