Jordan Environment Society – Current Projects

March 24, 2010

1•  Recycling Project:

The project involves three partner NGOs (JES, RSCN, and AWO). The main achievements of the project so far are the fact that larger numbers of people are becoming supporters of the recycling process, more collection sites have been allocated, production of information materials on local recycled paper is increasing and improving in quality with more people becoming convinced to use these products.

We would like to inform you about the recycling project; which is a program that aims at spreading the idea of recycling through organizing awareness programmes in schools, factories, homes, institutions and associations.

These awareness programs are accompanied with collecting used paper and plastic; as a way for the local community to support and participate in the segregation and collecting processes, in addition to produce and market various products, to encourage using the recycled paper and plastic.

Whereas working in recycling wasted paper has started with the initiative of a number of environmental volunteers at JES in 1995 accompanied with the gathering of some specialized people to work on spreading the idea of recycling in the local community. Therefore, a coalition has been formed between the local communities parties to guarantee a sponsoring support to the project and to find a base for cooperation between them .

2•  Environmental Training and Capability Building Unit Project

Jordan Environment Society (JES) has reactivated the king Hussein Program for Environmental Management, which was terminated in 1998 due to the cut-off of the fund from the Canadian International Development Agency (CIDA) that which had adopted the establishment and the activation of this program in cooperation with the Public Institution for Environmental Protection (Ministry of Environment) in late 2002. The project aims at improving Jordans capability to meet the training needs in the field of environmental management.

3•  Nutrition Unit Project:

In 2006 JES established this unit to familiarize the community with food and health food supplements. JES provides consultations through this unit, and hold specialized courses in nutrition.

4•  Environmental Theatre Project:

The Society produced the first environmental comedy drama in Jordan and in the Arab World, entitled “Recycling”.

Jordan Environment Society – Former Projects

March 24, 2010
1. National Environmental Information and Education Program (NEIEP): An agreement to implement this program was concluded with the Friedrich Naumann foundation in 1991 for three years. The agreement was renewed until the end of 1997. This program conducts training and educational activities targeting JESs staff and volunteers and other local and Arab environmental groups, media people, politicians, teachers and women, organizations and other sectors of the society. The program produces information materials on environmental issues and uses its mobile environmental exhibition to spread awareness all over the country. NEIEP aims at creating a special environmental library ( Environmental Information Bank) in future phases of cooperation. NEIEP is considered one of JESs tools to implement its policies and achieves its goals.

2. Awareness Project in Water (APW):

Water resources in Jordan are critically limited. The problem of water scarcity and quality represents a challenge for scientists and policy makers. APW is designed to implement sustainable “information, education, and communication” campaigns and activities throughout Jordan with the specific targets of decision makers, businesses, public and private organizations, community leaders, women, university students and children. APW has been implemented since June 1994 by JES in cooperation with Ministry of Water and Irrigation (MWI) and USAID for about five years. The main APW objective is to strengthen the institutional capacity of JES to plan, supervise and implement public awareness activities

APW aims to achieve public awareness at three levels:

Level 1: creation of general awareness through mass media campaigns, activities, and special events which attract large numbers of people.

Level 2: development of local human resources by training selected leaders from voluntary organizations especially the JES branches, women organizations, and others to be trained as trainers.

Level 3: local public awareness activities are implemented by community leaders which have been trained in level2.

The public awareness campaign strategy has been to use mass communications to create interest and promote information on the need to use water more efficiently. Slogans like “Every Water Drop Counts” have been effective especially with school children.

Community activities implemented by staff and trained local leaders (over 1,100) target different community sectors. Posters, stamps, films, computer displays, brochures and stickers contain messages that encourage people to save water for future generations, use water saving devices, protect water from pollution, collect rainwater and other themes which encourage water conservation

Over 5,000 people throughout the Kingdom in different targets have attended workshops, lectures, seminars and special events to learn about water conservation and discuss local needs. Two studies were conducted, first: the Water Awareness Study (phase 1&2), second use of Water Saving Devices (WSD) in Jordan . The study showed that of consumers who use large amounts of water, 16-30% savings could be realized with the installation of water saving devices. Seminars are being held to encourage engineering firms, hotels, hospitals, private schools and universities to use these devices. Four demonstration sites have been established to show the application of water saving devices, recycling, reuse, water harvesting and other water conservation efforts. These sites will be used for field trips or activities to emphasize the advantages of water conservation methods.

3•  Integrated Pest Management Project (IPM):

To establish ecologically and economically sound plant protection systems at the farm level. This can be achieved only by a joint effort of all involved Jordanian institutions and organizations. Ministries and research institutions, private businesses and farmers have to coordinate their activities to make a transfer and adaptation of environmentally friendly plant protection technology possible. In the long run this will lead to the re-establishment and preservation of the natural balance between agricultural pests and their natural enemies. This in turn will contribute to a sustainable agricultural production, as well as general improvement in human health conditions.

4• Water Efficiency and Public Information for Action (WEPIA)

5•  Environmental Education Data Base Program:

An education interactive data base including environmental local and global information supported by animation, pictures sound, and short movies which make the information more interesting to read and understand by the students. The CD was developed for PC users in Arabic version. This CD will be distributed to colleges, schools and any other interested institution.

6•  King Hussein Environmental Management Training Program:

The project is a partnership effort by the governments of Canada and Jordan and aims at upgrading Jordanian training capacities in the field of environmental management. KHEMTP develops the human resources that will build institutional training capacity to provide Jordan with the environmental management expertise to develop its economy while protecting both its natural and human environment. Specifically, the program will address the need for human resource development in environmental impact assessment, environmental auditing, state of environment reporting, environmental law and public awareness.

7•  The Solid Waste Management Project:-

An agreement has been signed for three year in 2000 between the Kuwait Society for Environment Protection and JES, this agreement by fund from Arabia Fund for Economic and Social Development.
The Kuwait Society for Environment Protection take the responsibility of the projects management and cooperation among within participant countries.

Project goals:-

•  The contribution in developing the solid waste management and to stop from its negative reflection on environment and local community health.

•  Find a mechanism and practical ways for ideal management of the solid waste.

•  Increasing the environmental public awareness for all responsible management institution.

8•  Bio-Gas Project

9•  Medical Waste Management:

The project goal is biosafety, which can be defined as the protection of medical personnel at their work places from biological and chemical hazards and to raise awareness in the medical community about MWM. The project is for 1999-2000 and is funded by GTZ.

 

10•  Agro-Biodiversity Click here to read a pdf file

11•  Segregation of Household Hazardous Waste Pilot Project:-

The Jordan Environment Society is implementing a pilot project to segregate household hazardous waste from other waste streams in Wadi Al-Sir Ares/ Al-Sahel suburb in collaboration with the Ministry of Environment and Greater Amman Municipality to provide the needed Capacity Building of public information for the residents and traders in the area on how to handle there waste through segregation, transportation, treatment as well as its hazards to the public health and environment.

Funded by (USAID) through partnership agreement with the International City/County Management Association (ICMA).

12•  Other Projects and Programs:

 a) Environmental Health Project (EHP):

This project has been implemented by JES in Dhuleil Wadi ( North/East Amman ). The objectives of this project were to promote personal measures to control household pests and to reduce the use of insecticides and pesticides by the local communities. This project was funded by USAID and supported by the local government.

b) Rhus Forest and Greenbelt Project:

In an effort to involve the private sector and large industries in environmental protection, JES has fostered the rehabilitation of abandoned quarries with the Jordan Cement Factory. The project aims to establish a mixed forest on the sites with Rhus trees forming more than 50% of the forest. The project will help in conserving biodiversity and increasing tree cover. JES undertook the planting of a greenbelt consisting of 15,000 forest trees and 2000 fruit trees around the cement factory site in Fuheis near Amman . 

c) The Global Environment Facility/Small Grants Program (GEF/SGP):

The purpose of this program is to support and promote community-level initiatives that address global environmental challenges. Projects supported by this program should also benefit the local environment and improve the livelihood of local communities.

Jordan Environment Society (JES) – JES Profile

March 24, 2010

Since its establishment, JES has hosted various unique environmental projects. Some of these projects include: awareness in water and environment, eco-media, integrated pest control, biogas, recycling, medical waste management, hazardous domestic waste management, solid waste management in Arab countries, comedian environmental theatre and an eco-student network. To accomplish its goals, JES has worked in partnership with many national, regional and international institutions. Some of our supporting agencies are: The Jordanian government and private sectors, USAID, WEPIA, UNDP, GTZ, Arab Fund for Economic and Social Development (AFESD),Fridrich Naumann Foundation, Canadian International Cooperation Agency (CIDA), WHO, and the French and Swedish governments.

In early 2003, a memorandum of understanding was signed with the Ministry of Environment for cooperation in all environmental issues. Many environmental challenges have been dealt with at the national level and proper solutions were set forth. JES worked hand in hand with the legislative authority, especially the Health and Environment Committee at the House of Representatives, with the aim to develop the current environment laws and regulations.

JES also issues a number of publications, such as the quarterly magazine “The Environment”, which educates the reader about current environmental issues around the world. a JES also publishes a periodical, called “The message of Environment Journal”, that documents the activities that JES and its branches are carrying out. JES has specialized committees to cater to all environmental issues. It hosts a legal committee, scientific, cultural, media, and agricultural committee, as well as the environment volunteers committee.

In cooperation with the Ministry of Environment, and through the former Program of King Hussein Environmental Management Training Program, JES has been holding Training of Trainers (ToT) courses in the environmental management field since 2003. JES offers courses on environmental audit, state of environmental reporting, environmental law, environmental awareness, and participatory appraisal. We also offer a specialized course in Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA), which is necessary for achieving sustainable development and meeting legal requirements for investment projects. At the completion of each course, the participant is granted a comprehensive certificate signed by the Ministry of Environment and JES.

Cooperation with international entities:

1.      United Nations Environment Programme: During the last 10 years, there was fruitful cooperation between JES and many of the UN organizations in the field of environment in general, and the training in specific. In February 2009, JES cooperated with UNEP to educate 35 professionals from Palestine in EIA, focusing on public participation.
