Planning and Piloting Watershed Rehabilitation for Improved Water Productivity with Water harvesting in Jordan

Start date
07 Oct 2021
End date
31 Oct 2022
The project activities in Jordan focus on the interplay of the marginal dryland ecosystem (uplands) and the irrigated production system around the Jordan Valley (lowlands). The activity particularly tackles the ecohydrological rehabilitation of the largely degraded Jordan Valley’s side Wadis that are discharging towards the Jordan Valley. The activities will comprise community-inclusive design of rehabilitation and sustainable management options, small scale testing of rehabilitation implementation, and an ex-ante assessment of the potential for large scale impacts on the areas’ ecohydrology.
