AMMAN — The tourism scene in Jordan has recently shown signs of recovery with growing numbers of tourists, Tourism Minister Lina Annab said on Wednesday, attributing the increase to several factors including the active role played by the private sector.
Annab made her remarks during a press conference held in Amman to announce the upcoming concert of the world-famous Italian artist Andrea Bocelli.
AMMAN — The Aqaba Marine Park (AMP) is scheduled to join Jordan's network of nature reserves this year, becoming the country's first marine nature reserve, according to a consultant on coastal management and protection.
The park, located 15 kilometres from downtown Aqaba, was declared a nature reserve by the government in 1997 with the aim of protecting the marine environment from rising pollution resulting from the rapid growth of Aqaba’s population and the expansion of its industrial activities.
Millions of birds soar through Jordan every year as they travel across Europe, Africa, and Asia on the world’s second-largest bird migration flyway. So in 2013, when IFC financed Tafila Wind—the first large-scale wind energy project in the Middle East—protecting these birds and the wildlife that resides in a nearby nature reserve was one of IFC’s top concerns.
Our Environmental and Social Performance Standards was the place to turn as we began to outline a plan that ensured the safety of Jordan’s wildlife.
