Water for Food -Water for Life - Agricultural Assessment

Agriculture and Environment Review;The Comprehensive Assessment of Water Management in Agriculture is a critical evaluation of the benefits, costs, and impacts of the past 50 years of water development, the water management challenges communities face today, and the solutions people have developed around the world. It is a multi-institute process aimed at assessing the current state of knowledge and stimulating ideas on how to manage water resources to meet the growing needs for agricultural products, to help reduce poverty and food insecurity, and to contribute to environmental sustainability. The findings will enable better investment and management decisions in water and agriculture in the near future by considering their impact over the next 50 years.

Biodiversity in Jordan

Agriculture and environment Review;The bio geography of Jordan exhibits pronounced regional differentiation due to climatic variation, diverse geography, and the intersection of three distinct faunal elements: the Ethiopian, Oriental, and Palearctic. The result is a surprising diversity of wildlife in Jordan, despite its relatively small size. Nonetheless, the total number of species is limited and remains vulnerable to land use impacts of development and the stresses from living in a predominantly arid and desert environment. The lack of natural barriers between Jordan and surrounding countries allows animals to move fairly freely from one country to another. Consequently, there are relatively few species that are considered “endemic” and only found in Jordan

Sustainable Aquifer Management in Jordan - Concept Paper

Agriculture and Environment Review;The threats to Jordan’s water supply from over-pumping of its aquifers are detailed in scientific and development planning documents dating back over two decades. In summary, Jordan is over-pumping 80% more water every year than the safe yield, and the imbalance is worsening because of population increases (estimated to double over the next 25 years) and precipitation decreases caused by climate change (estimated to at 50% in this century). The negative economic, social, and environmental consequences of continued depletion of Jordan’s aquifers are difficult to project, but are clearly serious.

Curtailment of Water use for Irrigated Agriculture - Fitch

Agriculture & Environment Review;Groundwater from the Amman Zarqa Basin (AZB) is an important and valuable natural resource. Water from the Basin is being seriously over-abstracted. Consequently, the water table is dropping and water quality is declining. This threatens the durability of one of the principal sources of M&I supply for the Amman area, and is thus of strategic importance to Jordan. Irrigation, which is generally thought to be a relatively low-value use, accounts for about half of current abstraction.

Implementing Better Water Stewardship - Mckinsey Report

Agriculture and Environment Review; The Ministry of Water and Irrigation (MWI) within the Government of Jordan has recognized water as a scarce resource critical to the future growth of the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan - a view that is shared by other parts of the government. MWI has requested the 2030 Water Resources Group (WRG), an innovative public-private partnership between the International Finance Corporate, McKinsey & Company, Nestle, Veolia and experts from Harvard University, to prepare a proposal which will bring global expertise in water resource management and solutions to support the water sector in Jordan. The end objective of the exercise will be to prioritise the entire set of solutions available to Jordan and review the current action and investment plans to create a roadmap for implementation of solutions in Jordan

Farmers Training Campaign - GTZ

Agriculture and Environment Review, Within the component ‘Efficient Water Resources Management in Irrigated Agriculture’ (WMIA) of the Jordanian-German Water Program, gtz ,and JVA have published the ‘Guidelines for Reclaimed Water Irrigation in the Jordan Valley’. The main recommendation of the guidelines is that farmers can save an enormous amount of money by adjusting amount and type fertilizer to the real needs of the plants. At the moment almost all farmers use two to four times more fertilizer than needed, as they do not consider the nutrient contents in the irrigation water and the soil. In addition, they usually apply more than the plant would need – to be on the safe side.
