Regional Workshop on Sustainable Management of Hydrological Systems in Arid and Semi-Arid Regions, May 11 – 15, 2013 in Karak/Amman, Jordan

Sustainable Management of Hydrological Systems in Arid and Semi-Arid Regions

Overview

Natural water scarcity in the Mediterranean countries, especially in arid and semiarid zones with high rate of population growth, urbanization and industrialization, forced by man-made factors, makes it difficult to achieve a reliable water resources supply. Dry-lands cover about 41% of Earth’s land surface and are habitat to more than 38% of the total global population of 6.5 billion. Several aspects of severe land degradation are in attendance on 10 to 20% of these lands. The consequences of these aspects are directly affect more than 250 million people were most of them are living in the developing countries. This estimation is likely to expand substantially as a result of climate change and population growth.
