WaCClim Case Study // Water-Energy-Climate Nexus in Jordan
Jordan is the world ́s second most water-scarce country. Energy consumption accounts for around 73 percent of Jordan’s national emissions and 15 % of these are attributed to the water sector. Water pumping is responsible for the majority of this consumption and is estimated to increase twofold by 2030. Jordan is therefore facing a long-term need to reduce its water and energy consumption.
