Implement a pioneer project using new technology to produce green fodder for livestock on a large scale throughout the year, without the depletion of the soil, water and existing space. Develop financial mechanisms for the local community that support the protected area, create new job opportunities, enhance sustainable livelihoods, reduce the cost of meat and dairy products, and promote community management. The project will recycle water and produce minimal pollution, decreasing the pressure on the Mujib Reserve in Jordan.

Strategic Direction: 3 Improve the conservation and protection status of 44 priority key biodiversity areas
