Description

Status quo or problem addressed by the commitment: The Jordanian Government seeks to participate with the international community and its neighboring states in establishing the needed mechanisms to combat the emission of greenhouse gases which cause climate change through the formulation and adoption of local policies in cooperation with the civil society and the public at large. Main objective: Address climate change, its effects and means for adaptation in all services provided to the public. Brief description of commitment: Develop operational policies on the national level to determine the effect of climate changes on Jordan and to address it in an appropriate manner. OGP challenge addressed by the commitment: Establish more secure societies who can face disasters and environmental hazards. Relevance: This commitment intersects with the access to information principle, especially to the information related to the potential risks emerging from climate change. Facilitating access to such information will provide a knowledge base for enabling the public to hold the government and its institutions accountable for adopting and applying procedures to limit risks and provide basic services to citizens. Ambition: The Jordanian Government aspires to develop practical and realistic policies which can contribute to building its institutions’ capacities and the public’s preparedness to deal with the climate change risks.
