Case study on policy regulatory reforms and financial and legal frameworks to promote small-scale renewable energy technologies and applications in rural areas in Jordan

May 2022

This case study was developed within the framework of the “Regional Initiative for Promoting Small-Scale Renewable Energy Applications in Rural Areas of the Arab Region” (REGEND). It tackles Jordanian policy and regulatory reforms and financial and legal frameworks needed to promote small-scale renewable energy technologies and applications in rural areas through an integrated approach.

The study, therefore, analyzes the national strategies and policies for rural development and assesses the ground-level regulations for rural productive activities that could promote both small-scale renewable energy technologies and entrepreneurial development and attract private investments. It also assesses a gender-specific line to promote women’s economic empowerment to access the market and provides guidelines for the design and implementation of policies and regulatory, financial, and legal frameworks to support rural development programmes that are economically, environmentally, socially, and institutionally sustainable.
