    The Jordan River Basin is the most important water resource shared between the Middle East countries: Israel, Lebanon, Syria, and Jordan. Its surface water and groundwater have been highly exploited and fought over throughout history. The diverse climate over its area results in spatially variable precipitation and evapotranspiration, thus, variability of water generation and consumption. To be able to manage the water resources in a sustainable manner, it is important to understand the current state of the water resources. However with limited up-to-date ground observations, in terms of duration, completeness and quality of the hydro-meteorological records it is difficult to draw an appropriate picture of the water resources conditions. The Water Accounting Plus (WA+) system designed by IHE Delft with its partners FAO and IWMI has been applied to gain full insights into the state of the water resources in the basin.

    Remote Sensing-Based Agricultural Water Accounting (AWA) for the North Jordan Valley 2022
    Also available in:
    No results found.

    The reader will have the chance to know more about the agricultural water accounting (AWA) activity, which was implemented in three cycles that included rapid assessment, detailed mapping and implementation of new techniques to assess water use and efficiency in the North Jordan Valley (NVJ). In these cycles, consolidated procedures have been applied to complement and validate open source data from earth observation systems (EOS) and the open source portal (WaPOR) of the Food and Agricultural Organization. The overall aim of the work was to provide assessment for agricultural water use in NJV and to provide solutions for water deficiency. The ultimate goal of the work was to institutionalize the water accounting (WA) systems at the Ministry of Water and Irrigation, so that open source data and WA tools would be fully utilized for water management in Jordan.
