NAWAMED to discuss uptake of non-conventional water resources use in Jordan

During this national meeting organized by the University of Jordan (UJ), the next 27th of May, stakeholders will identify and debate about specific obstacles occurring within the country/regional context and come up with strategies on how to tackle such obstacles in order to facilitate the application of Non-Conventional Water Resource (NCWR) technologies and Water-Demand Management (WDM) practices.

This meeting will focus on the theme “Barriers for the uptake of WDM and NCWR in country/region”, and is organized with the support of the Energy and Water Agency (EWA) of Malta, partner of NAWAMED.

Prof. Ahmed Al-Salaymeh, NAWAMED project coordinator (UJ), Mr. Melis Marzio, (EWA), Dr. Naem Mazahreh (National Agricultural Research Center -  NARC), and Eng. Muayyad Al-Bado, (Water Authority of Jordan -  WAJ) will present about the targeted theme.

At the end of the meeting, a set of conclusions and recommendations will be reported for the upcoming stakeholders' meeting. This is, in fact, the first of three meetings during which four key themes shall be discussed. The final conclusions will lead NAWAMED partners to the formulation of a set of country specific policy recommendations. Furthermore, these conclusions will be key to the development of a “Mediterranean Policy Document” which shall identify the key policy approaches required to support the increased adoption of WDM and NCWR at Mediterranean level.

The online event, from 11:00 AM to 1:00PM (Amman time) will be developed in English language and is open to all.
