With the continued growth of Jordan’s urban population as a consequence of the Syrian civil war, municipalities are struggling to cope with the increasing amounts of solid waste. Against this background, Connective Cities – in the framework of the “Municipal know-how for host communities in the Middle East” programme – brought together municipal actors from both Jordan and Germany for a Study Tour and Project Workshop in North Rine-Westphalia to enhance joint learning, develop concrete project ideas and strengthen bilateral cooperation between participating cities. This documentation contains a brief introduction to major aspects of integrated solid waste management, summarises insights presented and highlights the key outcomes of the joint workshop.
