This review gives an overview of the current programmes and policies on climate change and environmental issues being supported by donors in the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan (hereafter referred to as “Jordan”). The review focuses on national programmes although some regional programmes are touched on. The first section provides an overview of key national strategies, policies and reports related to climate change and environmental issues, with specific attention given to those that identify key priority sectors for Jordan and funding needed for implementation. Some of these also provide examples and lists of priority entry-points or projects that Jordan wants to implement, and these are highlighted where possible. The next section provides information on investment opportunities and gaps as identified in a recent analysis by US’ export.gov. The final section provides information on some of the ongoing projects currently being implemented by donors that were identified during this review
