Joroan joined the PMR in October 2011 and is formuating a Market Readiness Proposal (MRP focused on three target areas: Energy (renewables and energy efficiency); water (water efficiencty and wastewater management); and a city-wide approach to GHG emissions management. These areas have been identified due to their mitigation potential, Jordan's prior experience with mitigation, institutional and organizational feasibility, responsiveness to price signals and finally, transaction costs. Jordan plans to use
PMR support specifically to explore scaled-up crediting for NAMAs in renewable energy, water (energy efficiency in pumping, waste water treatment) and/or solid waste management sectors; and developm capacity for data collection, baseline setting, and an MRV system.
Jordan adopted the National Climate Change Policy and Sector Strategic Guidance Framework as its national climate change policy in 2013. This policy serves as an overarching guidance for Jordan to achieve climate change objectives. The National Committee on Climate Change (NCCC) plays a key role in the supervision of the policy implementation.
In the long term (beyond 2020), Jordan seeks to “achieve a pro-active, climate risk-resilient Jordan, to remain with a low carbon but growing economy, with healthy, sustainable, resilient communities, sustainable water and agricultural resources, and thriving and productive ecosystems in the path towards sustainable development.”
In the short term (2013-2020), Jordan aims to build the adaptive capacity of communities and institutions. The country has prioritized adaptation to climate change and mitigation of greenhouse gas emissions in the National Climate Change Policy and Sector Strategic Guidance Framework and key areas include energy supply and renewable energy, end-use energy efficiency, transportation, solid waste and wastewater, and LULUCF and agriculture.
The National Climate Change Committee oversees the development and execution of the country’s market readiness proposal (MRP), and the following institutions and stakeholders are involved:
