Jordan Environment Society

Following the belief that the environment is the both the endowment and responsibility of all people, JES encourages interaction of various entities in environmental solutions. Through its 15 branches around the country, JES raises public awareness and promotes community action at the local level. By accessing professionals in both the private and public sector, JES enables the adoption of policies and the application of international environmental standards. JES also aims to create a sound equilibrium between economic growth and the environment by promoting practices of sustainable development.
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.
