Partner Organisations: RWC, ATEEC, HEC, EWRE, MWI

Key Findings

  • Covering the projected water deficits in 2050 will require constructing new large-scale hydro-infrastructure and multiplying the capacity of the existing water infrastructure of Jordan and Palestine by about twice and four times, respectively.
  • It is reasonable to expand primary infrastructure in stages along existing conveyance systems.
  • Developing alternative water transfer options will allow for more flexibility and security with regard to the water supply situation of the region.
