The Water Valuation Study undertaken by the USAID/Jordan Institutional Support and Strengthening Program (ISSP)from 2011-2012 aimed to assess the value of water use in different economic sectors, with a particular focus on the agricultural sector to determine water’s value in producing different crops, in different locations, and for different markets. To do this it applied a Residual Valuation Methodology which deducts the contribution of non-water production inputs from the gross output and attributes the remaining value to water. It applied this methodology first to the industrial and service sectors of the economy, and then to 104 different agricultural crops in 9 regions in both winter and summer seasons. It also employed a Value Chain Analysis on a sample of crops to examine how water value was allocated among enterprises from crop production to the consumer’s table.
