Eco-tourism in Jordan

How does one define responsible development? Maintaining cultural identity and protecting the environment are two key aspects that play critical roles within a society and form the heart of a people. By neglecting these elements, you trade in a piece of a community's individuality, their humanity, in exchange for something worth so much less- money or technology. Here is a USAID project that has become self-sustainable and is positively contributing to the rural development of Jordan in addition to boosting tourism. I have been to the Wild Jordan restaurant off of Rainbow street in Al-Weibdeh and it is fantastic! If you get a chance, try the cocktails and the pasta.
