The aim of the “Towards Sustainable Resource Efficient Household” project is to transform household waste into business opportunities to support the economy of women and young people. The overall aim is to convert local initiatives into sustainable businesses using approaches such as awareness-raising, resource efficiency strategies and waste management.
With the aim of addressing two major environmental issues in Amman, namely water and energy consumption, and the reduction, sorting, and collection of waste, JGBC intends to carry out the following activities:
- Mobilization of beneficiary communities, including schools and community organizations, to raise awareness of the impact of water and energy consumption and present solutions for optimizing these resources.
- Data collection and survey by a specialist in sustainable construction and housing
- Based on the results of the survey, training for 25-30 beneficiaries to raise awareness of entrepreneurial opportunities in waste management and sustainable construction and living.
