Amman 1st SEMED state to join EBRD Green Cities program

Amman, the capital of Jordan, becomes the first country in the Southern and Eastern Mediterranean region (SEMED) region to join the EBRD’s Green Cities Framework, planning and investing in its future green development.

Under a Memorandum of Understanding signed on Wednesday during the EBRD Annual Meeting and Business Forum between Amman’s Mayor Dr Yousef Al Shawarbeh and EBRD Director for Municipal and Environmental Infrastructure Susan Goeransson, EBRD will work with Greater Amman Municipality to develop a Green City Action Plan (GCAP)  and strategically address the city’s needs for sustainable growth. GCAP will be funded by the government of Austria. This effort will complement the measures Amman – a member of the C40 Climate Leadership Group - has adopted to improve the city's environment, fully aligned with Jordan’s National Green Growth Plan.

With financing from the EBRD and international donors, the GCAP aims to tackle the most pressing climate change and environmental challenges, including in solid waste management, water and wastewater, urban roads and lighting, urban transport and public building energy efficiency, in order to reduce local pollution, improve energy and resource efficiency and promote climate change adaptation..

The activities under the Framework in Amman will be developed jointly with the Greater Amman Municipality and the Ministry of Environment in Jordan.

The initiative is part of the EBRD’s Green Cities Framework that builds on the EBRD's two decades of experience investing in municipal and environmental infrastructure.

EBRD’s Green City Framework has been concluded in Yerevan, Tbilisi and Tirana, and further Green City Action Plans are being launched in Minsk (Belarus), Sofia (Bulgaria), Chisinau (Moldova), Belgrade (Serbia), Batumi (Georgia), Gyumri (Armenia) and Zenica (Bosnia and Herzegovina). Over five projects worth around EUR 70 million have been signed since the launch of the Framework in November 2016. Amman is expected to be the Framework’s first city in the SEMED region.
