Med4Waste in Jordan organises a panel discussion on the composting scene in Jordan

Join us for a morning discussion on the promising composting scene in Jordan, where waste is turned into a valuable resource. The event will take place at the Four Seasons Hotel in Amman, Jordan, on Sunday, May 14th, from 9 am to 11 am.

Jordan has made a lot of improvements in managing its waste and promoting sustainable practices. With the effects of the climate change on Jordan’s soil and agriculture sector, the country has seen a growing interest in composting as an effective way to reduce waste and create a valuable resource for agriculture. This event will bring together experts and stakeholders from the government, private sector, and civil society to discuss the composting scene in Jordan, its potential for growth, and the challenges it faces.

The panel will feature speakers from the Med4Waste capitalised projects, including Nabil Al-Kofhi, the Mayor of Greater Irbid Municipality, who will share insights on the Med-InA project. Munir Al-Rousan, a Doctor at Jordan University of Science and Technology, will speak about the DECOST project, while Ahmed Al-Nubani, a climate change and sustainability expert, will discuss the SIRCLES Project, which is also funded by ENI CBC Med programme. In addition, Wael Mehyar, the President of the Association of Organic Fertilizers for Ecosystems, will provide his perspective on the use of compost2 in agriculture.

The event is organised by Med4Waste's Jordanian partner, EDAMA. The panel discussion aims to promote circular economy practices, highlight the benefits of composting, including reducing the amount of waste sent to landfills, promoting source separation. The discussion will also address challenges and opportunities in implementing composting initiatives in Jordan, sharing the experience of its capitalised projects, MED-InA and DECOST.

This event is open to anyone interested in the composting scene in Jordan and its potential for creating a circular economy. We invite entrepreneurs, investors, policymakers, civil society organisations, and anyone interested in sustainable waste management to join us. Registration is free, and the panel discussion will be held in Arabic.
