How Can We Solve the Middle East’s Water Scarcity: A New Report by Fanack
Fanack Water Files on Water Challenges and Solutions in Jordan with a Special Report on the Red Sea-Dead Sea Project
Fanack, a Netherlands-
New York-based publisher, Cosimo is proud to present Fanack’s first publication in this series of Fanack Water Files, Water Challenges and Solutions in Jordan with a Special Report on the Red Sea-Dead See project. This publication deals in-depth with the water situation in Jordan, a country of strategic importance to the region due to its location in the Syrian desert and bordering Iraq, Saudi Arabia, Syria, and Israel. Jordan’s growing water scarcity is caused by increased demand due to rapid population growth and overexploration of water resources in recent decades. The limited water supply is one of the main obstacles to Jordan’s development. This first report addresses possible solutions, such as rainwater harvesting, treated waste water, seawater desalination in the Red Sea and water transfers between the Red Sea and Dead Sea.
In times of global upheaval, growing world population, and increasing evidence of climate change, this report will enlighten policy-makers planning their next policies, business people looking for opportunities and academics looking for concise information on the state of water in Jordan. In essence, it is a report of importance to all stakeholders in a more peaceful and prosperous future for this region and the world.
