Jordan joined the Coalition to raise awareness about short-lived climate pollutants (SLCPs) in the surrounding region and further promote its vision of a green economy and sustainable development. The country recognizes that SLCP reductions will in turn reduce premature deaths, increase crop yields and provide greater food security. As the first country in the Middle East and North Africa region to join the Coalition, Jordan has helped raise the Coalition’s profile in neighbouring countries.
