Also to encourage promoting innovative and replicable solutions in the perspective to the development of the market of green economy in a sustainable way.
to contribute to full scale implementation of activities to induce behavioural changes and adoption of best available technologies and practices for green economy/growth and to foster investments towards circular economy; regulations and standards; R&D; information and public awareness; training; monitoring; and thereby demonstrate the feasibility, benefits and sustainability of new technical solutions, which can further strengthen Jordan’s drive to introduce the concept of Green Economy.

to demonstrate to the public that NEXUS (water-energy-food) and circular economy models as part of the environmentally friendly and decentralised solutions can create green economic development. The whole programme will have a positive impact on climate change, energy conservation, green building practices, as well as on water management, reduction of natural resources degradation (soils and air pollution, and biodiversity threats), efficient use of resources including secondary ones (waste), and sustainable agriculture solutions.
