Jordan’s municipal institutions and services face extraordinary pressure as the country hosts 1.4 million displaced Syrians. Some municipal services require immediate attention. In some municipalities, for example, the volume of solid waste has doubled, which strains the existing infrastructure. If poorly managed, the situation could become a serious public health or environmental crisis.

When opportunities arise, this program connects Canadian municipal leaders and experts with elected officials and municipal staff in central and southern Jordan. It facilitates peer-to-peer technical assistance to help Jordan's local governments manage their solid waste infrastructure systems and engage citizens.
