Jordan - Helping Jordan meet its NDC targets for the waste sector [JO-22-002]

by CCAC - 28 July, 2023


This project responds to a request by the Jordan’s Ministry of Environment to provide technical assistance to support the implementation of waste sector targets in Jordan’s updated 2021 NDC. It also seeks to develop an integrated GHG, SLCP, and air pollutant assessment to further guide waste sector activities in Jordan. 


  • Jordan’s government has increased capacity on GHG accounting in the waste sector and tools to support SLCP mitigation. 
  • Jordan’s government has a strategy for implementing mitigation options in the waste sector and fulfils its NDC commitments. 


  • Training workshops and support tools to representatives from the Monitoring Department of the Ministry of Environment, the Ministry of Local Administration (MoLA), and Greater Amman Municipality on the development of a national GHG inventory for the waste sector. This includes training on refined data methodologies, the identification of climate change indicators, and on the best available technologies and practices for solid waste management and treatment. 
  • An integrated GHG, SLCP, and air pollutant assessment for the waste sector and recommendations for inclusion of GHG, SLCP, and air pollutant mitigation in Jordan’s waste portfolio that will help the country achieve its NDC targets.  
  • A portfolio of proposal concepts for projects that would help Jordan to establish an integrated waste management system that is compatible with its climate response targets. This should build on the integrated GHG, SLCP, and air pollutant assessment for the sector. Proposal concepts could include establishing MSW sanitary landfills with landfill gas capture and use, composting facilities, and anaerobic digestion plants, among others.
