The potential of the project suitability is too high especially there is a shortage in the local market for the educated and qualified engineers in the field of environment and climate change. The MENA countries in the Middle East and North Africa have a plan to increase the share of the adaptation to climate change projects and therefore the need for such a program is extended outside Jordan to the regional countries and also to international.
