This is the first comprehensive, multi-disciplinary book to address water policy in Jordan. Edited by the former Minister of Water and Irrigation of Jordan, with contributions by other prominent Jordanian and international water professionals, this volume covers such areas as the population-water resources equation in Jordan; institutional and legal frameworks; the data systems used for the assessment and formulation of water policy; water allocations and uses in municipal, industrial, and agricultural sectors; social and environmental issues; and water conflict with Jordan's neighbors. The book is a must for readers interested in Middle East politics and the critical nature of water issues in the region. The book notes the importance of interaction with the outside world to augment water resources through trade, making the experience of Jordan relevant to other developing regions where water is scarce. It introduces the term 'shadow water' to mean the scarce indigenous water resources that the import of agricultural and industrial commodities saves or replaces. The book shows how financially profitable it can be to treat water as a tradable commodity, to be exchanged peaceably across international borders. Haddadin and his distinguished contributors bring the water conflicts between Jordan and its neighbors, Israel and Syria, into sharp focus. The book includes a historical perspective on the development of water policies in Jordan and explores the significance of water in the religious, social, and political life of the country.

While industrialized nations are facing declining birth rates and aging populations, developing countries must deal with rapid urbanization, migration movements, and ongoing population growth. Population Dynamics and Supply Systems explores the links between demographic changes, the environment, and sustainable development. These complex interactions are illustrated with the provisioning structures for water and food. From an inter- and transdisciplinary perspective, this volume uses case studies from Europe, Asia, the Middle East, and Africa to propose innovative solutions for enhancing the adaptive capacity of supply systems to cope with demographic changes.

The current water situation in the Arab countries is alarming, with critical implications for the future of development in the region. The demand for water is increasing exponentially as a result of rapid population expansion, changing lifestyles, urbanization, and the pressures of economic growth. The high dependency of the region on transboundary waters and growing competition over water use further intensifies the water crisis. Furthermore, the repercussions of climate change, both current and projected, will exacerbate these ongoing challenges. The complex nexus between this fragile water situation, food security, and the energy sector further emphasizes the social, economic, and political implications of the water crisis in the region. This water crisis is, at its core, an issue of governance. The water sector, in many cases, is managed by fragmented government institutions, with inadequate capacities, low coordination, and overlapping responsibilities leading to the inefficient provision of potable water and sanitation services. Furthermore, in many countries, lack of government funding and low cost recovery constrains the financial sustainability of the water sector. The water security of the region requires an integrated and comprehensive approach of "effective water governance", and is necessary to ensure sustainable development in the Arab region. Identifying and adopting the principles and practices of effective water governance can guide the evolving socioeconomic needs of the people in an equitable and environmentally sound manner. Going beyond the traditional debates on availability, uses and dependency of water resources, this Report places the issue in a socioeconomic and environmental context and lays out the building blocks of good water management. These includes "cost effectiveness" analysis as a tool for weighing the options and competing interests involved in complex water decisions; setting up and enhancing environments through legislation, regulations and institutions; supporting shifts in patterns of water demands; and creating incentives for investment in more sustainable approaches. Lastly, the Arab region's current political and economic transformations present an opportunity to advance water governance reform, while effective water governance systems can in turn catalyse region-wide aspirations for overall governance and sustainable human development.

"The MENA region is the driest in the world. Irrigated agriculture consumes the largest volume of water resources due to the continuous demand for food production. A huge potential for satisfying this increasing demand exists in the reuse of municipal wastewater in agriculture. This book emphasizes the importance of appropriate water policies and the enabling institutional setting in successful wastewater management and reuse. The in-depth-analysis is presented through the case study of Jordan."--Page 4 of cover.
