Jordanian Prince participates in the Middle East Green Initiative Summit


Riyadh, 25 October 2021 (TDI): Crown Prince Al Hussein bin Abdullah II on Monday participated in the Middle East Green Initiative Summit hosted by Saudi Arabia.

In remarks at the summit, Crown Prince Al Hussein said climate change is “the most urgent challenge of our time”, but it does not receive the level of attention it demands. The Royal Highness associated the importance of climate change with the teachings of Islam. For example, Islam asks to refrain from cutting down trees, wasting water, or even hunting outside of prescribed seasons.

Likewise, he pointed out that Jordan has faced several climate challenges, especially water scarcity. “The resources have been severely strained after welcoming consecutive waves of refugees over the past decade”, His Royal Highness said.

Moreover, the Crown Prince remarked on the 2021-2025 Green Growth National Action Plan, which covers multiple sectors, including agriculture, energy, water, and waste management, to address the climate issues in the country.

The Royal Highness also stressed the need to agree on government policies to counter the impact of climate change. He mentioned the implementation of modern, water-saving farming practices, accelerating the shift towards renewable energy. As well, promoting the use of electric vehicles, and converting waste into energy sources.

His Royal Highness also thanked Saudi Arabia and Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman for organizing the summit.
