Environmental Law and Policy
Jordanian policy makers are aware of the environmental dimension in the business climate. Although environmental concerns might not affect all economic activities, it still remains important to bear in mind concerns regarding the appropriateness of certain investments as they regard environmental policy.
Currently there are a set of laws and regulations that govern environmental issues: Environment Protection Law No. 52 of 2006 is the primary legislation that organizes the environmental issues in Jordan. There are other regulations that organize specified areas such as water protection, air protection, nature protection and environmental impact.
