Water is a PRECIOUS resource in Jordan since it is a small country with limited natural resources. Recently, it has been rated among the 4 most water-poor countries in the world ( a massive blow when compared to position 10 a few years ago).

Growing populations and ongoing drought are squeezing our water resources dry, causing natural habitat degradation and impacting our everyday use of water. We have no choice but to pay more attention to how we are using water, and how we may be wasting it. We must bridge the gap between our understanding of how important water is to our survival and what we can do to ensure that we have an adequate supply of clean water for years to come.

LET"S GET THE COMMUNITY INVOLVED! Every drop counts and every person can make a difference.
Let's plant the seeds of selflessness, courage and community spirit. The Earth is One country and Mankind is its citizen!

The Campaign against Climate Change (UK) and the Call to Action (Jordan) are proud to have presented our first event in Jordan (2007) "Global Climate Campaign -Call to Action Fest2007, Jo" and hope to continue this annual tradition of spreading public awareness concerning environmental issues we are all facing.

This year, coinciding with the UN Climate Talks (MOP 3, COP 13), the Campaign Against Climate Change (UK) intends to synchronise an INTERNATIONAL ACTION DAY AGAINST CLIMATE CHANGE on December 6th to call on world leaders to push for the urgent and radical action. Up till now more than 70 countries have signed up!
