Jordan ranks among the world’s poorest countries in terms of water availability and has no significant energy resources of its own. However, the demand for water and energy is very high and steadily increasing. At the same time, the technical and administrative water losses (non-revenue water) in the national water networks amount to 43% of the available daily water supply. Besides the illegal tapping of water, the primary causes of this situation are the poor servicing and maintenance of the public supply and distribution networks and of sanitary installations in households. Therefore, the efficient and economical use of the natural resources water and energy is both a national priority and a major target of the TWEED  project. At the same time, Jordan is suffering from high youth unemployment. More than a third of the country’s youth is without work, with women being twice as hard affected as men. The growing demand among companies for a qualified skilled workforce cannot be matched at present by corresponding numbers of skilled workers (professionals) trained to meet the requirements. As a result, Jordanian companies do not have qualified professionals in the area of water and energy efficiency (WEE).Through a combined approach of

  • upgrading vocational training opportunities,
  • enhancing human tailor-made capacity building, 
  • supporting institutions in the field of vocational training and
  • creating cooperation formats between training institutions and private sector,

the mismatch of technically skilled labour force demand and supply is tackled in the field of water and energy efficiency. Developed and certified  new training modules on plumbing and solar heating etc. will build the capacity of young people to operate and maintain water networks and solar panels efficiently and effectively.


Jordanian companies have qualified professionals at their disposal for ensuring water and energy efficiency.

Potenziale: The project is aligned with the implementation of E-TVET 2014–2020. It relies on key levers such as company involvement, an independent testing and certification system, and teacher training. This offers potential for increasing the number of training programmes and, at the same time, for the activities to have a capacity-building effect in the vocational education system.
