pixon september

The governments of Jordan, Israel, and the United Arab Emirates (UAE) signs a landmark declaration of intent to build renewable electricity and water desalination capacity and address the threat posed by climate change on energy and water security in the region. Feasibility studies for the project are due to start in 2022. Israel is targeting 30 percent of its energy coming from renewable sources by 2030, up from a previous target of 17 percent, as it looks to achieve net-zero carbon emissions in the energy sector by 2050. Jordan is the second most water-scarce country in the world, with annual renewable water resources of just 80 cubic meters per person, significantly below the threshold of 500 cubic meters per person which defines severe water scarcity.
