Adaptation to climate change In the Zarqa river basin: opportunities and barriers

Published by: MDG Achievement Fund, UNDP


This report’s main objective is to compile adaptation measures that are relevant to water availability and quality of water resources in the Zerqa River Basin (ZRB) that can be considered best-practices for adaptation to climate change. By doing this, it aims to support the efforts of the Government of Jordan through the Ministry of Environment to incorporate Integrated Water Resource management into climate change adaptation in the water sector.

This report investigates the barriers and constraints that need to be assessed to overcome suggested adaptation measures. Based on a general classification of adaptation barriers, potential barriers to implementation of adaptation measures have been analysed and evaluated according to their degree of severity.
