Hello! I’m excited to share some thoughts regarding ways we can accelerate the implementation of the environmental dimension of sustainable development in Jordan.

While different ministries have taken great steps forward to encourage the adoption of policies and regulation towards different SDG environmental goals, there is the occasional overlapping of related responsibilities in the environmental sector – and thus an overlapping of the subject matter legislated on and the subsequent institutional regulation produced – which creates institutional gaps. Thus, a possible solution could be introducing SDG focal points within different ministries to help coordinate ministerial plans.

To promote innovation and alternative methods of thinking, different members of the Jordanian community must foster creativity and a challenging mindset amongst the youth and up-and-coming academics. The GoJ may also create action plans set up for and with the specific intent of fostering and supporting new research avenues as science can drag along the correct and innovative policy solution.

Dear Ms Ola, Thank you so much for your input. Certainly, the overlap among ministries worth looking at, there is always a room for improvement of processes. The plans to advance the engagement of youth in science and innovation is a great idea too. Thank you.
