Building resilience to cope with climate change in Jordan through improving water use efficiency in the agriculture sector (BRCCJ)

Titre : Building resilience to cope with climate change in Jordan through improving water use efficiency in the agriculture sector (BRCCJ)

Pays : Jordan

Durée : 19/03/21 (approuvé) — (fin)

Descriptif
One of the most water-scarce countries, Jordan is facing severe climate change risks. Increasing temperatures and reduced rainfall patterns, coupled with an unprecedented population growth due to an influx of refugees, have significantly strained the population’s water demands.

This project will increase new supplies of water by recycling wastewater and harvesting rainwater. By reducing the demand on groundwater sources through efficient cropping and water use practices, the project will bolster vulnerable farmers’ climate resilience - particularly women who play a critical role in Jordan’s agricultural sector. They will receive training to become “climate wise women.”
