At the intersection of Asia, Europe and Africa, Jordan is often described as an ‘oasis of stability’ in the region. Despite its small size, it boasts a rich history of empires and civilizations that have made it the country it is today. 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.
