Abstract: Jordan depends almost exclusively on imported fuel, except for the moderate contribution made by a recently-discovered indigenous natural-gas field. Transportation is the largest single-sector consumer of primary energy, followed by electricity generation and the manufacturing industry. Primary-energy consumption is projected to grow to 4.5 x 1.66 TOE by AD2000. There is optimism over harnessing much more ambient energy annually in order to help the process of economic and social development. Potable water shortage is at least an equally important problem for Jordan. Unfortunately, insufficient investment has occurred in environmentally-friendly sewage and refuse-disposal facilities. So a national strategy for the protection of the environment and the wiser utilisation of natural resources is proposed.
