Among other things, Austria supports the ecological urban development plan of the Jordanian capital Amman with a focus on waste management, air quality and energy management. King Abdullah will also attend the UN climate conference COP26 in Glasgow, which starts on Sunday.
The Jordanian king recently hit the headlines through the so-called “Pandora Papers”. He is said to have used 30 tax haven offshore firms to buy 14 luxury properties in the US and UK.
