For decades, the Government of Jordan has recognized that rapid population growth affects its ability to achieve socioeconomic progress and places tremendous strain on Jordan's fragile resource base. Jordan has been very successful at reducing population growth during the last 20 years. Irbid has the highest population density among Jordan's governorates and a total fertility rate of 3.8, which affects the governorate's ability to meet its development goals. Based on an analysis carried out using the RAPID model, this PPT presentation illustrates the impact of continued rapid population growth on various social and economic sectors. Jordan's Higher Population Council has used this for policy dialogue with Irbid governorate policymakers.
