N-W-JO-2: Explore the potential of Natural Water Retention Measures (NWRM) at the catchment scale

By |2024-05-17T20:12:23+03:00November 16th, 2020|

The rapid urban growth in Jordan is accompanied by a reduction of recharge to the groundwater sources and an increase in storm water flows. Because of a lack of natural infiltration areas for water, there is a severe loss of water yields to groundwater adding to the water scarcity in the country. This activity will identify appropriate Natural Water Retention Measures to be implemented in two pilot zones.
