AMMAN —  Seven initiatives and 24 priorities for the sustainable environment sector, valued at JD88 million, were announced on Sunday as part of the Economic Modernisation Vision’s executive plan for 2023-2025, the Jordan News Agency, Petra, reported.

The initiatives and priorities target sectors related to environmental sustainability, the green economy and green urban development. The plan features policies encouraging the transition towards a green economy, increasing green activities in industrial facilities, establishing agricultural projects for sewage treatment plants and raising the number of waste management facilities to a total of 18.

The plan supports a safe waste management system through allocating recycling locations, initiating solid waste management programmes and ensuring the safe management of waste containing mercury.

It also includes launching a national research platform for climate change, waste management, transportation and energy to protect biodiversity and natural habitats. According to the plan, green job opportunities will also be provided to bolster green infrastructure. Through an initiative to plant 10 million trees over 10 years, the plan also encourages the concept of smart farming and nature-based solutions.
