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

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.

N-W-IL-2: Storm water management and Natural Water Retention Measures

WES will support Israel to assess and to inventorise or map potential retention areas and to propose a management plan for the utilisation of the retained volumes. It will enrich the knowledge and know-how of storm water management in urban areas, to review best management practices and to learn from designing Natural Water Retention Measures in two pilot cases.
