The Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan is an upper middle-income country with a population of 9.53 million, approximately 70 per cent of which are under 30 years of age. Despite unprecedented stresses caused by regional volatility, Jordan has demonstrated effective resilience capacities in maintaining stability and responding to crises. It is placed in the high human development category of countries, and ranked 86 on the 2016 human development index. Jordan has placed resilience and economic, social and environmental development at the core of its national priorities. In 2015, the Government elaborated its Vision 2025 that conceptualizes an integrated and transformational framework to achieve a prosperous, resilient Jordan through: active and empowered citizens; a proud and vibrant society; a dynamic and globally competitive private sector; and efficient and effective government. A prominent advocate for achieving the Sustainable Development Goals, the Government has highlighted the close alignment between Vision 2025 and the 2030 Agenda, and submitted its First Voluntary National Review in July 2017.

Jordan faces the two overarching developmental challenges of exclusion and vulnerability. Socioeconomic vulnerabilities vary widely between the 12 governorates, especially in terms of local economic development and concentration of urbanized poverty. Exclusion is also reflected in citizens’ lack of trust in governmental institutions and limited participation in decision-making processes. Vulnerability to socioeconomic challenges and political exclusionary factors, coupled with the impact of overspill from regional instability, has exacerbated risks to social cohesion and citizen-state relations and intensified concerns over the threat to Jordan’s sustained peace and human security. In addition, there are precarious levels of environmental fragility: Jordan has extreme water scarcity and drought risks, threats to fragile ecosystems on land and in the sea, the degradation of arable land and desertification, the impact of rapid demographic growth and urbanization, and dependency on imported, non-renewable and inefficient energy sources.
