Titre : Developing sustainable water management in the Jordan valley

Région : Moyen Orient

Code du projet : IC18970161 FP4-INCO

Durée : From 1997-11-01 to 2001-04-30

Descriptif
The main objective of this project is to develop the scientific basis for an integral management plan of water resources and their use in the Jordan Valley.
Specific objectives are :
* Development of a GIS-based database containing harmonised sets of population, land use, soil and water data of the Jordan Valley, including consistent sets of maps that project distribution of water sources and users.
* Projection of potential available sources and demand of water until about 2030.
* Assessment of the hydrogeological conditions, including a conceptual model for assessing environmental and health risks of current practices on soils and groundwater.
* Identification of environmental and health risks of water quality degradation.
* Evaluation of water collection, storage, delivery and irrigation practices and development of scenarios for water and soil management, regarding different land use practices.
* Formulation of an optimisation model for water use, considering utilisation conflicts and potentials of conjunctive water uses.
