Center for Sustainable Development Studies and Technology (CSDST)
CSDST is an independent think tank specialized in developing strategies,
conducting studies and research, providing cconsultations, and managing
projects related to achieving sustainable development to provide
decision-makers, the civil society and local and international donors with
evidence based on scientific advice necessary for making informed policy decisions aimed towards sustainable
development. To learn more about JUST CSDST, please click here.
The center of
energy was instituted in June 2004 to establish closer relationship between
Jordan university of Science and Technology (JUST) and different industries,
professionals, policy makers and the public. The
internal code and by laws for the center have been issued and approved by the
university council of governors, and the ministry of higher education. To learn

Water Diplomacy Center
The Center for
Water Diplomacy was inaugurated as the latest university center, which was
established at the end of 2019 and approved in 2020 as part of the Yarmouk
Future Project and with the support of the Swiss Agency for Development,
especially since the water sector is one of the most important sectors that
play a major role in the sustainable economic growth of any country. Water and
the environment represent one of the biggest challenges facing global and local
communities. As we know, water is a vital component for growth, prosperity, and
civilization, so it is not surprising that the transboundary basins host more
than half of the world's population, with countries sharing about 310 rivers
and lakes and 592 surfaces of groundwater. The Middle East and North Africa
region are one of the most water-scarce regions in the world, where the water
demand exceeds the natural amount of available water by about 20 percent due to
population growth and the deterioration of the impact of climate change on
water resources. With this contrast, it may increase significantly if it is not
treated appropriately. To learn more about Water Diplomacy Center at JUST,
