The Gulf Crisis of 1990-1991 caused severe environmental damage in many countries of the including Jordan. In the Jordan Badia, the damage to the terrestrial ecosystems resulted from the influx of refugees with their livestock (estimated at 1.8 million heads of sheep, goats and camels). The degradation of the ecosystems affected the productivity of the Badia Rangeland, which is one of the principal grazing resources for Jordan livestock. The Government of Jordan claimed to the United Nations Compensations Commission (UNCC) for the remediation and restoration of terrestrial resources. Accordingly, UNCC awarded Jordan US$160,582,073 in 2005 for the rehabilitation and restoration of the Badia terrestrial ecosystems.  In 2008, the Government of Jordan established the Badia Restoration Programme (BRP) with two main objectives:  I) To reverse or mitigate damage inflicted on the Badia terrestrial ecosystem with the full cooperation and participation of the concerned Badia communities; and II) To restore biodiversity and normal productivity of the ecosystems in the Badia rangeland, with a view to optimizing grazing resources.

The BRP prepared the Community Action Plan (CAP) aims at conducting most suitable restoration approaches, including biophysical interventions and socio-economic arrangements, to fulfill the principal objective of the BRP in restoring the damaged ecosystems in the Jordan Badia. The 2011-2019 CAP forms the key guidance for outsourcing projects and actions on the ground level, and it includes two major components:

  1. Integrated Watershed Management;
  2. Integrated Livestock and Socio-Economic Component.
