National Workshop on Development, Implementation and Evaluation of Energy Efficiency Policies in the Buildings Sector in Jordan
The Economic and Social Commission for Western Asia (ESCWA) is organizing, in collaboration with the Jordanian Ministry of Energy and Mineral Resources (MEMR), a national workshop focusing on the methodologies for developing, applying and evaluating Energy Efficiency policies in the buildings sector in Jordan.
This national workshop is an activity scheduled in the UN Development Account (UNDA) project on “Up-scaling Energy Efficiency in the residential and services sectors in the Arab Region”. This project aims to substantially enhance the capacity of ESCWA Member States in improving and optimizing energy efficiency in the building sector and up-scaling energy efficiency programs in the existing residential and non-residential building stock.
The objective of this national workshop is to provide technical assistance, through a training workshop, to relevant national institutions and national experts in Jordan for the development of short, medium- and long-term strategies and appropriate energy efficiency policies for the existing buildings in the residential and services sector, including developing the necessary Monitoring Reporting and Verification (MRV) schemes. The training workshop will provide the necessary background, methodologies and outlines for preparing such strategies and policies.
