Assessment report of prevailing situations in rural areas in Jordan

March 2021

The baseline study for Jordan was developed within the REGEND (Regional Initiative for Promoting Small-Scale Renewable Energy Applications in Rural Areas of the Arab Region) framework with an assessment to guide REGEND’s future activities in the country. This covered the country’s socioeconomic and political dynamics and environmental considerations linked to productive activities by sector, the access to energy services requirements, and the availability of supply sources and the associated technologies required to support resilience in rural communities. The study also provided recommendations on the pilot rural community – Al Asha’ary region in Maan governorate, and Batir region in Karak governorate – where most of REGEND’s field activities will be conducted.
