A report on ways of mitigating the impact of climate change, titled “How the climate system in the MENA region affects its water resources” and published by the Middle East Institute, indicated that the effects of climate change could be reduced through accurate planning.

Jordan’s water sector focuses on countering the challenges of drought and coping with climate change through appropriate policies and regulations.

An official source at the Ministry of Water said that climate change impacts water sector policy, which follows a proactive and precautionary approach to protect the limited water resources.

The report pointed out that accurate planning should include managing facilities and reducing the negative impact of their users, in addition to finance agreements that are designed to tackle the damage caused by high levels of salinity.

It also stressed that it is important to increase cooperation among countries in the region if owners of water resources projects are to expand their potentials.
