  • The Green Corridor of Jordan | Royal Botanic Garden
    MED Project Events RBG Events Support us How You Can Help Donate You are here Home The Green Corridor of Jordan Towards a Greener Jordan What is the Green Corridor It is a sustainable agroforestry project being put forward as a joint initiative of the Embassy of France in Jordan and the Royal Botanic Garden The concept was introduced to the Jordanian public on April 13 2011 and is already generating a lot of interest It calls for the planting of millions of native trees to create a permanent band of greenery from one end of the country to the other The Green Corridor will help combat desertification create protected habitats for small plants to grow in encourage a return of birds insects and animals and ultimately revitalize the land and bring more rainfall But planting trees is not enough For the new trees to survive and thrive we need to raise environmental awareness change behaviour patterns take better care of the land introduce new rangeland grazing methods recycle our grey water train the local communities create agricultural micro projects that can share the corridor space All these things have a place in the Green Corridor plan The project should stimulate village economies curb rural migration to cities and bring new hope to the land The First Steps The Green Corridor will not appear overnight It requires dedication planning and cooperation on a national scale A great many components need to be put into place to get this off the ground Fundraising and long term commitment The project is frankly massive And the only way it will happen is if substantial donations become available now and in the coming years Therefore support is being sought from major corporations that want to show social responsibility and or offset their carbon footprint
