At the intersection of Asia, Europe and Africa, Jordan is often described as an ‘oasis of stability’ in the region.
While it faces serious challenges, including water scarcity and conflict, displacement and migration – Jordan borders Israeli-occupied Palestine and hosts the largest proportion of refugees in the world, Jordan boasts a spirit of tolerance, valuing its ethnically and religiously diverse population, which contributes to the stable and peaceful climate.
Jordan is opening its doors to the Global Land Forum with a focus on engaging young people in the country and region in building a sustainable future.
It will be the first time in the event’s history that it is hosted by a country in the Middle East, part of an important and newly expanding region for the International Land Coalition.
