Since 2014, due to a shortage of resources, large UNESCO’s science program in Jordan has been temporarily suspended. However, as science is interconnected with the other sectors, UNESCO engages in the scientific arena supporting a knowledge society through education; retrieving ancient processes to dye fabrics naturally; and protecting the World Heritage Site of Petra with a Disaster Risk Reduction approach .

Thanks to its multi-sectoral expertise, UNESCO Amman office was actively involved in and contributed to the preparation of the first World Science Forum in the Arab Region, held in Jordan from 7 to 11 November 2017, organizing a side event and a thematic session.
