Signing of Japanese ODA Loan Agreement with Jordan: Contributing to a sustainable and stable power supply and improvement of the country’s financial situation through budget support

[Goal 7] Affordable and Clean Energy
[Goal 13] Climate Action


On September 5, the Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA) signed a loan agreement with the Government of the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan in Amman to provide a Japanese ODA loan of up to 15,000 million yen for the Electricity Sector Reform and Resilience Enhancement Program Loan (Phase 2).

This loan aims to promote renewable energy and strengthen energy resilience—meaning a strong and sustainable capacity for energy supply—in Jordan by providing the government with financial assistance that will be used to support reforms in the country’s energy sector. The loan will thereby contribute to the realization of a sustainable and stable electricity supply and to the improvement of Jordan’s financial situation.
