Al Hussein Fund for Excellence
Environment

Jordan has limited primary energy resources and is known for its scarcity of water.

HFE, thus, has targeted, and focused recently on, supporting projects and encouraging research in the field of environment and renewable energy.

 

Environmental Project Goals: 

  1. To support research and sustainable projects that adopt renewable energy and are eco-friendly (green projects).
  2. To encourage business innovation and private sector participation in eco-environmental projects.
  3. To increase society awareness on renewable energy and environmental issues.

 

Projects:

  • Royal Society for the Conservation of Nature (RSCN) Launch Event for a New Production Line​

    As a non-governmental, non-profit organization, the RSCN doesn’t only protect Jordan’s nature and wildlife, but also aims to integrate socioeconomic development with nature conservation programs. This approach helps to generate economic opportunities for the local communities living in and around the RSCN’s nature reserves, improving the livelihoods of the local community.
    The RSCN runs several handicraft workshops around its reserves where local women produce unique products inspired by our nature and local heritage. There is a continuous need to develop new designs http://onlinetablettak.com/ and introduce them to RSCN’s marketing network in order to increase sales, which can potentially positively impact those working in handicraft workshops and, in return, their communities.

    To support RSCN objectives, Al Hussein Fund for Excellence is sponsoring a public event organized by the RSCN to launch its new handcraft products. Potential customers are invited to spend a day at Al Azraq Wetland Reserve to be familiarized with these items, thus increasing its direct sales. 

 

  • Royal Society for the Conservation of Nature (RSCN) Eco-tourism Development in the Azraq Wetland Reserve​

    The RSCN strives to switch all sources of energy in its protected areas to renewable energy. Implementing solar energy in the Azraq area has tremendous potential for success as in that location there are more than 300 days of sunlight a year.
    The RSCN plans to use solar energy to generate power for the Azraq Wetland Reserve’s visitors’ center. These systems will also include water heating and small photovoltaic units.
    Al Hussein Fund for Excellence is sponsoring the RSCN project of installing the first solar energy unit at Al Azraq Wetland Reserve.
    The new solar unit will be used as a pilot that would be replicated in all RSCN sites and will be also used as a tool for raising visitors’ awareness on renewable energy.
