The paper Climate Change Governance in Jordan: Towards policy and institutional coordination includes the summary of the baseline assessments carried out by Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH to provide strategic recommendations for the Jodan Ministry of Government to accelerate the implementation of the policies that align with the national priorities on sustainable development and assist to improve the UNFCCC negotiation process.
The first assessment of the intersectoral coordination for climate change governance includes suggestions regarding restructuring the national committee on climate change and ideas on integrating and mainstreaming climate change into national, sectoral and developmental planning processes with special emphasis on the Jordan Vision 2025 document. The second assessment examines the implementation progress of the national climate change policy since 2013 and identifies main priorities for the future implementation. The third assessment study provides an analysis of the training needs of national stakeholders to enhance climate change governance capacity and identifies the main priority issues for capacity development. These three assessments are considered as an integrated package that shows the short and long-term priorities for climate change governance in Jordan based on gap analysis and institutional capacities.
