Water Statistics and Accounts for Jordan: Part I

Jawad Atef Al-Dala'een


Jordan ranked as one of the world’s poorest countries in terms of water availability. In the face of scarcity of water and the opportunities to increase supply are few and very expensive, the government is trying to solve part of the problem through redistributing the available sources of water to different uses. Presently, the redistribution of available sources and the usage of sewage treated water for agricultural purposes is enough to meet the demand for water. Population and industries development and increase of demand for food will grow the demand for water. Such increase requires radical and efficient solutions. The government’s planning and future projects take into consideration alternative sources for water supply. Some of these projects depend on dams building, while others depend on the usage of non-traditional sources such as the reuse of treated water and desalinization of sea water.
