AMMAN — The West Asia-North Africa Institute (WANA) and Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung (FES) on Thursday hosted a high-level panel discussion on Jordan’s efforts to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) by 2030, according to a WANA statement.

Deputy Resident Director of FES in Amman Richard Probst stressed that “the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development has the transformative ambition and the potential to change our planet.

Therefore, a public debate in Jordan about these goals is highly welcome”. He stressed the importance of the conference, held under the patronage of HRH Prince Hassan, noting that energy, water and climate change are “cross-cutting issues that are fundamental to all of the SDG and central to development, security, and poverty reduction in Jordan”.
