AHT delivers Online-Seminar on environmental and social safeguards to Jordanian students

Created by Rania Taha and Dirk Rolker |

In response to a request from the BAU, AHT prepared and delivered an Online-Seminar tailored for BSc. students of two engineering disciplines (Chemical Engineering and Mechanical Engineering). The Online-Seminar introduced the basic steps of Environmental and Social Impact Assessments (ESIAs) whilst focusing on the Jordanian legal framework. It also provided an overview of some international environmental and social safeguards, and outlined the steps for carrying out an Environmental and Social Management Framework (ESMF) using one AHT’s relevant assignments in Mali as an example.

In addition to the BSc students, the BAU also extended the invitation to members of the Jordanian Engineers Association (JEA).
