IWRM Vision

Integrated Water Resources Management (IWRM) provides an integrated, multiple-use approach to water development and management. When linked to the MDG, this will help advance progress on five of the eight millennium Development Goals:

  • Goal 1 to eradicate extreme poverty and hunger;
  • Goal 2 to achieve universal primary education;
  • Goal 3 to promote gender equality and empower women;
  • Goal 4 to reduce child mortality, and
  • Goal 7 to ensure environmental sustainability

(IWMI, IRC, Water Policy Briefing, Issue 18, 2006) .

slide6
Jordan’s IWRM (as all water management plans) is built on three

main governance aspects:

  • Enabling environment of appropriate policies, strategies and legislation for sustainable water resources development;
  • Forming the institutional framework to implement such policies and strategies; and
  • Creating the management instruments to enable the institutions to perform their tasks.

Integrating all the above elements together on a national acceptable

level forms an IWRM plan.

slide7
In its development the national IWRM plan, the following were insured and

elaborated:

  • Political Commitment,
  • Strategic Vision,
  • Development of Water Vision,
  • Scheme for Mobilization of Resources,
  • Stakeholder Participation,
  • Water Management Strategy Options,
  • IWRM plan preparation scheme and approvals by all stakeholders, and
  • Development of the expected outputs
slide8
Jordan has went ahead towards the development of national IWRM plans.  Thus, the country would need more assistance and support in implementation of its IWRM plan rather than the development process.
  • The country has two main plans that represent the main guidance for IWRM planning in Jordan, mainly:
    • Water for life “Water Strategy & Water Policies in Jordan” 2008-2022; and
    • “The National Water Master Plan” 2003 currently under upgrading.
slide9
Jordan implements a framework for broad stakeholder participation, public

private partnership for water supply and sanitation in pilot areas, Examples are:

  • The experience with public private partnerships in the operation and maintenance of the water supply and sanitation systems in Amman (LEMA in past and MIYAHUNA now). AQAPA WATER COMPANY where cost recovery would top 100%)
  • The start of management contracts in the Northern region (the governorates of Irbid, Jarash, Ajloun, and Mafraq)
  • South Governorate Outsourcing (collection and billing)
  • Al Samra WWTP, BOT (WW effluent quality is according to the Jordanian Standards and discharge is sold to farmers)
  • Twelve Contracts between Jordan Valley Authority and Water users association to manage water distribution among the farmers in the Jordan Valley, Al Azraq Oasis. This approach is under development to applied in the highland areas
  • Jordan Valley Authority outsource an PS Company (Replacing Irrigations Network and pumps, Managing Irrigation Activities)
  • DISI Water Conveyance Project, and
  • Jordan Red Sea Project (Desalination).
  • The above examples would lead to improving revenue generation and enhancing operation efficiencies, as well as improving water demand management
  • Towards increasing the involvement of the private sector the government is in the process of approving the private public partnership law which controls the involvement and participation of the private sector in all development sectors with an emphasis on the water sector.
slide10
Jordan is also implementing a major Water Demand Management (WDM) project

aiming at institutionalizing WDM in all systems deals with the water management in the

Country. The most recent examples are the development of a water demand management

action plans for four major ministries in Jordan, namely; the Ministries of:

  • Environment ,(Inclusion of WDM in EIA, Licensing, EA, and Inspection processes, and the use of the Jordan Environment Fund for WDM and Cleaner production Tools)
  • Public works and Housing (the use of water efficiency measures in the building codes, and the reuse of Grey water and treated wastewater in the housing projects)
  • Tourism (Use of water conservation measures and tools in the classification of Hotels and restaurants, incentives program for water conservation, and reuse of Grey water and treated wastewater)
  • Industry and Trade (Incentives programs for water conservation and cleaner production in industry, soft loan and financing programs and schemes)
jordan needs towards upgrading the iwrm
Jordan needs towards upgrading the IWRM:
  • Policy dialogue at the National Level
  • Policy dialogue related to shared water resources management and Regional water rights;
  • Adaptation to climate change
  • Integrating Social Dimension into WMP
  • Water demand management tools;
  • Gender mainstreaming in IWRM
