The National Climate Change Policy of the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan 2013-2020

20 May 2013


Jordan recognizes that climate change is a serious and pervasive threat
to humanity. The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC),
the highest scientific body of the UNFCCC responsible for evaluating
the risk of climate change, affirmed in its Fourth Assessment Report
(2007) that the “warming of the earth’s climate system is unequivocal”
and that this warming is attributed to the dramatic rise in humaninduced
greenhouse gas emissions since the mid-20thcentury.2
