Climate change-related water challenges in Jordan and Lebanon

The Arab region is one of the most water scarce in the world; this is particularly true in Lebanon and Jordan, where the water crisis has been exacerbated by challenges related to climate change, the unprecedented influx of displaced persons, groundwater over-extraction and pollution.
 
ESCWA, in collaboration with UN-Habitat, organized on 14 October a meeting of the national steering committee in charge of “Increasing the Resilience of Displaced Persons and Host Communities to Climate Change-Related Water Challenges in Jordan and Lebanon.”
 
Discussions revolved around the evaluation and monitoring of the project, which focuses on responding to climate change-related water challenges by adopting a sustainable water management approach.
