EDAMA in Arabic means sustainability. EDAMA Association is a Jordanian NGO established in 2009 in response to Jordan’s energy, environment, and water security needs. As a Business Association, EDAMA cultivates an environment where innovative solutions for energy and water independence and environmental conservation emerge.
Advancing Jordan’s movement towards a green economy and sustainable development is an ambitious and priority goal. To be achieved, robust knowledge hubs, multi-stakeholder dialogue avenues, and private sector mobilization are required.

These key players together discuss and shape the future development of the energy, water and environment (EWE) sectors in Jordan.
