Title: Responding to Climate Change in Jordan: Understanding institutional developments, political restrictions and economic opportunities
Jordan is one of the world’s most resource poor, arid and freshwater stressed countries. Over the past two decades anthropogenic climate change has aggravated these challenges further. While Jordan is rarely mentioned in global climate change discussions and debates, we argue that due to its climate change vulnerability and low levels of resilience, as well as its vital role in Middle Eastern politics, it is necessary to examine how climate change policies are approached in the kingdom. Based on the thematic analysis of official climate change policy documentation and elite interviews, we find that climate change problems are portrayed as important in Jordan, but the policymaking and implementation processes face significant challenges. The main predicaments are: the prioritisation of short-term political and economic interests, the use of climate change in rent-seeking behaviour and subsequent over-reliance on external actors, limited financial, technical and knowledge capacities, and a lack of coordination between the key public sector stakeholders. Using Jordan as a case study, this paper enhances our understanding of climate change adaptation and mitigation in other vulnerable and resource poor countries.
