Creating Economic Opportunities and Investments for Peacebuilding:
Regional Environmentally Sustainable Investments in the Jordan Valley
The Jordan Valley is a shared regional resource,
under great pressure
Divided by borders and political tensions, and affected by competition over scarce water, the region suffers from economic hardship.
Impacted by the environmental demise of the Jordan River, and the impact of climate change, the region is in dire need of investment and development.
Through our Jordan Valley Master Plan we have shown how the region is a rare, untapped, economic jewel.
We are committed to the sustainable development of the regional Jordan Valley, which provides a unique opportunity for the private sector. Entrepreneurs from the region are collaborating with us to identify profitable business opportunities that also have a potential for significant positive impact on livelihoods in the Jordan Valley region.

Drive pilot projects to encourage private investment and local businesses’ follow up
Provide a liaison for the private sector in the relevant countries
Open doors and efficient procedures for the private sector
Facilitate and promote projects to impact investment in the region
