Nov 2, 2016

Part of the Consultations

UNDP in partnership with the Ministry of Water and Irrigation and the Ministry of Environment kicked off the second consultative technical session on "Drought Institutional Set Up & Early Warning System in Jordan". The workshop aims to discuss three basic pillars, which are: The main objectives of the national drought management strategy, the indicators for the drought early warning system and the proposed institutional set up & governance for the drought management in Jordan.

Different representatives from relevant institutions and a number of national experts attended the workshop.

It’s worth mentioning that the development of an integrated system for the drought management in Jordan is being implemented by the Ministry of Environment and the Ministry of Water and Irrigation with technical & financial support from UNDP and the (GoAL WaSH) program, funded by the Stockholm International Water Institute (SIWI). This project aims at building national drought resilience strategy to increase national preparedness to reduce the effects of drought and to develop an early warning system based on indicators that cover all development sectors.
