Jordan is working hard to try to benefit from the worldwide attention now being paid to the needs of developing countries in dealing with the effects of climate change. Jordan’s delegation of some 80 experts, youth and environmental activists to the United Nations Climate Change Conference in Glasgow, Scotland aims to give the country a foot in the door of the vast funding potential coming out of the climate summit that is projected to reach $100 billion.

Bashar Zaitoon, a freelance environment sustainability consultant, told the Media Line that Jordan suffers from climate change but doesn’t contribute to it. “Jordan’s carbon footprint less than 1%, but the problem is that all countries are affected in one way or another,” he said. Zaitoon noted that it is usually the poorer countries that are more affected by climate change and that marginalized communities often suffer the most because they are unable to adapt, and because the socioeconomic situation makes them more vulnerable.
