The German-Arab Environment Forum


Environmental protection is a global issue that requires international exchange. Germany enjoys an outstanding reputation in all areas of sustainable environmental management worldwide, and the expertise, know-how and professionalism of German enterprises significantly excel in the cooperation and economic development within the EMA region. To that effect, the EMA once more provides the perfect platform for an intensive exchange in Jordan.
