Greener. Cleaner. More Sustainable.

Under this Pillar, UNDP works towards achieving and maintaining a balance between economic development and environmental management and conservation; which is essential for the realization of the Kingdom’s poverty reduction and long-term development goals.

The Pillar contributes in areas of biodiversity, desertification, climate change, energy efficiency, Disaster Risk Reduction and Drought Management, hazardous waste and water management, inter alia. Support is also provided to the signatory role of the government of Jordan in delivering and reporting upon many global level environmental conventions.
